I had another thought about the Subtle Tile Background from a second visit and different light. I described how to replicate it previously in my article, “A Subtle Tile Background”.
In the changed light, the grout looks brown… and there are flecks of glitter in it! So I changed my “grout recipe”.
Mix Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder with a little Real Red Glitter or Emerald Envy Glitter Stampin’ Emboss Powder (very little of your glitter powder). Tap off the excess and save it in a separate container for another project if you like. Melt the powder with the Heat Tool.
To finish the look, mix a drop or two of Early Espresso Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill (119789) with a drop of alcohol. Apply the mixture with a cotton swab to coat the “grout”. Be careful to not stain the “tiles.”
Tip: Cut big scraps for a Scrapbook Page and leave a little more space in between. You can cover the page fully, or make a border.
