Tiles (using Natures Nest)

Good Morning All

Hope your week is treating you well.

I've been having a little fun playing with a technique/effect.  Actually playing is the right word because the first two attempts went in the bin!  Unusual for me as I usually make things work but there was absolutely no way with my first attempts.  Luckily I was happy with my last attempt of tile making.  I love the way my card has turned out, no bias there.  I've stamped the images onto a piece of very vanilla cardstock and then cut them into squares.  Thereafter I've stuck them down to my card (in the right order) left it to dry and then used crystal effects over the top to give them the tiled (glazed) effect.

Take a look and let me know what you think.
