Mmmmm...Not Sure I'm Good at This


I was busy procrasting with making the annually expected calendar for my son's grandmother when Mynette ( On a Stampage and the new Inkspirational Challenge Blog)  left me a message drawing my attention to the challenge on Technique Tuesday  - Faux Tile.

I used a Kanban stamp with a repeatable pattern and Vintage Photo Distress Ink on cream card. I added 3 Stampin Up brads.  There's a big gap at the top as I intend to bind it with the Bind-it-all.

I did find this technique quite tricky as I always stick things a bit wonky. But it was fun trying!
