T is for Tile.

This weeks Alpha challenge over at The Craft Barn is to use the letter T.
As usual I made a short list of words that would fit  and as I had been using the Faux Tile method on a card last week decided to stick (well I was using Glossy accents!) with that theme and chose the word tile.


Page has been given a wash of  Matchpot paint in Willow Tree.
Tiles made from an off cut of paper in my stash which had a tile pattern effect.
Coated with Glossy accents.
Letter created using the Sizzix alphabet strip 656133
Entering into the following challenge:
The Craft Barn: Alpha letter T.


  1. After seeing your lovely bird canvas on tile, I was inspired to do tile on some ATCs for a swap I'm in. They came out nicely - so thanks for the inspiration! I really enjoy browsing your lovely blog as you are so incredibly talented. It always inspires me and of course, the stories are always entertaining. Do take care and enjoy your new stamps and colorful pens! :-)

  2. What a great page, and that soft minty green color is beautiful! I hope you get your email problems sorted out soon - getting hacked is no fun :(

  3. Cool page and take on tile. Looks like it was quick, easy and fun to do - don't you love it when a plan comes together.

  4. Keeping with the letter T. Your page is terrific. Love the tiles. I snooped previous days too, and love the Zandra stamps. Can't wait to see what you do with them. Question: Have you been a good girl over at Pixie's Playground? I thought maybe I'd come home to sheep dyed pink, and a goat with a missing goatee. Glad to be back in WIFI land.

  5. What a clever use of your DP to fit your Tile theme, and coat 'em with G.Accents to create the shine. Great achievement on your word theme. Liked this one a lot. TFS

  6. I love mint green, it's such a cool colour! What a good idea to use tile-patterned paper for your tiles, they look great!

    I hope your email troubles have been sorted, how upsetting to be hacked.

    Take care!

    love Mags B x

  7. Wow! I love your faux tile, you could have fooled me!! Love the colors combo! Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs and sunshine

  8. How wonderfully convenient to be playing with your "T"ile stamp just when the "T" came up! Go you!! I loove your page!!

    I enjoyed the cards I've missed on your previous posts because of work and I came across your hacked post. I'm so sorry. What a royal pain in the arse! I hope it is sorted out soon and you are able to get everyone's comments!!
