You & Me...

My post today is a card I made for a Crew Call (Design Team call) over at
Technique Tuesday

To enter the Crew Call, you are given a list of 2012 Techniques to select from. 
You than create a submission using the technique you chose and enter that creation.

I decided to use the Faux Tile technique for my submission.
I chose a digi image from Beccy's Place - Strawberries, which you can find HERE

I used the following COPIC markers to color my image:
Colorless Blender 0, C-1, C-3, G000, G02, G05, R22, R27, R29, Y00, Y02, Y17
My piece was than cut into random 1" x 1", 1" x 2" and 2" x 2" pieces to create the tiles
I sponged around all the edges of each tile with Grey Wool ink
Sentiment from Studio g, inked with Memento - Tuxedo Black ink
Finishing touches include: black adhesive rhinestones, metal tag attached to ribbon with safety pin

 I love the way this card turned out and really enjoyed doing a technique card for a change.

Make sure to check out the blog HERE, if you are interested in applying for the Crew Call
If you just want to challenge yourself to learn a new technique each month, this is the place.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges as well:
