LOC: Happy Thoughts


I saw the technique this week over on SCS which was Faux Tile Background and thought it looked fun!  I had never tried it before and am trying to stretch myself more :o)  You probably notice I tend to stick to clean and crisp designs and am comfortable with that style, but at times it is good to try something new and different.
I used the Brick Wall cling art stamp to create my faux tile, such a great background stamp!!  I also used the Embroidered Butterfly cling art stamp and the flourishes are from Nature Walk.   I am not a big "color-er" like so many of you (I am amazed with your skillz) and sponged my butterfly with yellow and brown ink.  I love how shading a bit around the *tiles* with a Gray Copic made those tiles really pop, uber cool!!!

This card fits the following challenges:
Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge (create a card of encouragement/congratulations)
