grid stencil LJ911. This grid stencil gave me the opportunity to finish off the design with a technique called faux ceramic tile. Here is a closeup of the tile effect created with clear embossing powder. It reminds me of Spanish tile and makes me want to try other colorways too. I created the tangle work with a Micron 01 pen by Sakura and then did the coloring with an older set of Prisma color pencils that we've had for more than twenty years. I love color so this first challenge had to have color. YAYA!
If you would like to know the step-by-step process for faux ceramic tile email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will email you a pdf of the instructions.
This is the first Wednesday (Zensday) for Wayne and me to work together on a blog post. I would like to do this every week, so hopefully I can get my act together to post regularly. Wayne will still be posting to his Flickr account when he joins a diva challenge, but we will try to post a collaboration project here as well. Below is a card that he tangled and I made into a greeting card creation using our new small elephant stencil LL3042. That design also comes in a larger version elephant LG756.
