Blue tiles

 I'm doing a big clean up and purge in my craft room, and I'm chucking out so much stuff, but once in a while, I come across something that I have to save. I had a box of little things for cards - flowers, die cuts, stamped images - and most of them went in the bin, but not these little squares. I no longer own the stamp I used for the blue flowers (it was from Hero Arts, but it's discontinued), but I remember the technique, taught to me by Sue Madex.

The little squares were covered in versamark ink, and then clear embossing powder, and embossed. Then I repeated this 5 times - 6 layers of embossing! Then I put them into the freezer, left them there a while, then I took them out and cracked the embossing. 

I paired these squares with a stencil from Picket Fence Studios and a sentiment from The Ton. I also put it all on a card base made from my favourite colour cardstock, Ballet Blue from Stampin Up, which they discontinued years ago (how could they??)

 Thanks for visiting :)


  1. I love this! I vaguely remember doing something like this so long ago. I'm inspired by your card to give it a try. Well done!!

  2. this is so pretty Michelle. Love the crackle look on your tiles.
