Mosaic Card

I was looking through CTMH's Wishes book which has a 100 card ideas & came across a card on page 114.   I liked the mosaic look & thought it would be a great way to use up some of my leftover scraps from the Heartstrings Workshop on the Go kit (retiring at the end of the month), but what started with a simple idea ended up looking nothing like the original design.   Close To My Heart has 8 How-To Program books with 100's of scrapbooking & card making ideas along with cutting guides & fundamental design principles.

I had fun with the mosaic pieces & it's a good way to use up all your little scraps.  The frame is from the March Stamp Of The Month "Choose Happy" & I used the Watercolor Pencils to colour it in then sponged around it & inside with the Glacier Ink Stamp Pad.  The background stamp on the side is the Season of Thanks set, I used VersaMark Ink pad & embossed it with Ranger White Super Fine Embossing Powder, then I used Pixie, Glacier & Whisper ink stamp pad colours for the reverse embossing, I found these to go with the papers the best.  The little border stamp is also from the March SOTM set along with the "you're special" sentiment.

Before I put it all together I used a double sided sticky sheet & put micro fine glitter over it & burnished until it smoothed out then peeled off the backing & used it as a sticker over the top of the mosaic pattern to soften it down,  I was happy with the end result.
