Penny Black - Blooming Garden

Happy Saturday!

Today, I have a fun card that uses a tiling technique. 
I happened to be looking through some card images I saved for inspiration 
and saw this technique again. It is very simple to do.  

I stamped the poppy image.  
This image is from Penny Black Blooming Garden.   
This was my first Penny Black stamp purchase.  It is a clear stamp set, 
you never know with clear stamps how well they will stamp.  These were really nice and firm and gave a crisp image.   

I stamped the poppy image on a white piece of cardstock 2-5/8 x 4-1/8",
then colored it with Copic markers.  I cut the image down the center (1-5/16") and in 3 equal pieces (1-3/8") lengthwise.  
Then I layered it on some smokey shadow cardstock 3x4.5", leaving a 1/8" border to give the tile effect. 

The base card is 5.5" square.  Sentiment is from Biblical Impressions.  
I also made a couple using 'Thinking of You' and 'With Sympathy'.
