This week's challenge is the Aged Tiles Technique from the April 2008 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. This technique was an egroup favorite -- and I remember why! Any stamp will work, and it is easy. You should give it a try!
My card uses a giraffe from I Brake for Stamps layered over paper from Mark's Finest Papers. I found the grasses in my stash (um, that doesn't sound quite right to find grass in your stash, but as crafters, you know what I mean LOL), and I thought it added the right flair.
A couple of years ago I found "pastel pencils" in the clearance aisle at Michaels. They look like colored pencils, but they spread like pastels. I LOVE them and love to blend them with my fingers. That is how I colored the giraffe.
Take a moment to pop over to the TJ Design Team blog to see Beth's creation if you get a chance! She put a cool spin on it.
