A Cheery Challenge: Let's Relax

This week The Cheerful Stamp Pad's Challenge is "Let's Relax". Well, do I have the perfect stamps for a relaxing pastime - my Relish Reading set!

Two weeks ago, I was reading my latest edition of the SCS Weekly Inkling and I saw their Faux Tile tutorial. It looked fun and I do love tiles! So, of course, I had to go rogue with it! I created my tiles, coloring the image with copics, cutting it into squares and then coating my tiles with glossy accents. I also added a quote from the same plate and put it in a torn frame.

Garden in Your Pocket
Stamps: girl under tree and sentiment from the Relish Reading plate (Rogue Redhead Designs)
Paper: scrap from my overflowing basket
Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant and Whisper White
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Copics: B12, E00, E02, E11,E19, G21, G24, V06. V09, YR23, YR24
Other: Glossy Accents (Ranger)
Techniques: Faux Tile (Splitcoast Stampers); Torn Frames (Technique Junkies)

Besides having a great challenge theme, this Cheerful Stamp Pad Challenge is being sponsored by Rogue Redhead Designs! If you play along, you could win 3 singles from the Relish Reading plate including the two shown in the above card!

Why not pay homage to your favorite way to relax and join in the fun!
