Last week MariLynn used the below picture from Pinterest:

I used the MFP stamp set called Lots of Words. I started by stamping and embossing the image on kraft, and cutting the piece into diagonal squares after colouring. I found it easier to do this by drawing a grid on the back of the image and using a utility knife and ruler to cut the squares. I used foam dots to adhere the squares on a patterned paper panel.
I forgot to put ribbon on the panel before adhering the squares as I had intended, so I decided to add some doodled lines to the edges and faux stitching to the sentiment. I really like how this turned out so I'm kind of glad I forgot the ribbon (I can't believe I just said that!). Some sparkly embellishments finished the card off.
Overall this tiling technique is a bit time consuming, but it is really pretty and graphic, so I may use this again. I think it would be fun to play with configurations and size of the squares and various images.
So thats it for me this week! Next week I will have some new inspiration for you, so I hope to see you then!
