Val .S (sample)
 

 
Supplies used:

To create the tile:
Brown/Grey card
Versamark Ink
Ultra Thick Embossing Powder
Dandilion Flower Stamp
Maple Leaf Stamp
Momento Black Ink

1.  Cover the brown /grey card with Versamark, then cover with the ultra thick embossing powder and then heat with heat tool, repeat this process about 3 to 4 times (depending how thick you want it to look).

2.  Ink up stamp with black ink and while the embossing power is still hot/warm press the stamp into it leave for a few seconds and then remove.

3.  Once done you can embellish it onto the card.

4.  I used white card stock which I run through my Cuttlebug using a embossing folder then mounted onto black card.

5.  I embellish the cards with Rhinestones and Raffia
