Designer Tiled ISC

I was inspired to make this card by ISC's Challenge #9, Monochromatic Mania. It also uses a new TJ technique Designer Tiles.

I started off wanting to try out this new technique. Then I pulled some designer paper from my Far East Mat Pack (DCWV) that seemed to fall into the same color scheme (to meet the ISC requirements) and went from there. After I finished the top layer I looked at my Earth Elements to see what color fit the best and this Really Rust was perfect! I inked up the silhouette from Nature's Silhouettes I with CRAFT Really Rust. I'm so glad I used the craft because regular dye ink probably wouldn't have given enough coverage due to the texture of the designer paper. I matted the top layer onto a Really Rust with VersaMark on the edges to darken the c/s then layered that onto a folded layer of Really Rust. I cut the VersaMarked layer a tad bit small, but used it anyway. I really like how this turned out!

Stamps: Nature's Silhouettes I (ISC); Ink: VersaMark, CRAFT Really Rust; Paper: Really Rust, Whisper White, Far East Mat Pack (DCMV); Accessories: Xryon, Copper EP, heat gun.
