Gently Falling Collage Faux Tile Card

Edited 11-9-11 to add: To do the Faux Tile technique, start by scoring a grid on your cardstock. The Simply Scored Tool works great for this! Then, sponge ink over the cardstock to make the "grout" lines really pop. I used Crumb Cake ink. The last step is stamping your images.

Are you getting tired of this technique? Here's one more sample from my Faux Tile Workshop Wow display board from the Louisville Regional Seminar. I love this collage with the Gently Falling stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog. (See it in my Online Store here.)

For the pleated crochet ribbon, I put a piece of Sticky Strip across the cardstock and then put the ribbon over it, pleating it as I went and pushing down to get it to stick good to the card. Easy Peasy!

I am not tired of it! Love it! What I want to know is do you stamp first or last?

I love this card, too, but I do not know how you do it. Same question for me, do you stamp first and then use the score pal for the lines? Very cool effect.
