Faux tile card

I saw this technique in an Australian Cardmaking Stamping & Papercraft magazine.  It involves making a 'tile' background by scoring lines on glossy cardstock and brayering ink onto the card, trying not to get it in the score lines. Since I don't have a brayer I sponged light blue ink on instead, then went over the score lines with a white gel pen. The flowers and leaves were stamped on white cardstock and then cut out.  The largest flower is on foam mounting tape to make it 'pop'. The card came together quite quickly and this is a technique I'll use again.

This is a close up so you can see the 'tiles' more clearly:

Paper - SU whisper white, SU baja breeze, white card from stash, glossy white card from stash
Stamps - PTI blooming button bits, PTI turning a new leaf
Ink - SU riding hood red, SU chocolate chip, SU kiwi kiss
Accessories - SU kiwi kiss grosgrain ribbon, foam mounting tape
