Mosaic Madness Sneak Peek

Sneak Peek Mosiac Madness CPC ChallengeWell…I had tons of fun making this card.   I wanted to experiment with some techniques today and my aim was to create a glass tile look using the brand new Mosaic Madness stamp set and matching Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder.   For inspiration, I decided a challenge was in order and loved this layout from Craft Project Central


Inkydayz How Tos:

  • Dry emboss a piece of vellum using the Modern Mosaic  Embossing Folder (available 2 July).
  • Lay a piece of coloured card under your vellum so it’s easier to see where to stamp and using your Stamp-a-ma-jig stamp in the mosaic sections.  My aim was an old mosaic tile look, so I wasn’t fussy with my stamping.  I dried each one using my trusty heat tool prior to stamping the next as the ink takes a little longer to dry on the vellum.
  • Cut the card to size.
  • On a piece of plastic or glass squeeze out some versamark refill.  Use your brayer to cover your piece of stamped card with the versamark.
  • Cover the sheet with clear embossing power and use your heat tool to melt the powder.
  • Optional step.  Dry emboss again, lining up the previous embossing in the embossing folder. I found that this helped bring the pattern out better.
  • To make the faux washi tape, I simply coloured a piece of vellum by running the vellum across my ink pad and then used my finger to even out the colour.

  1. What a beautiful card! I love your tip about laying a piece of coloured card under your vellum so it’s easier to see where to stamp and using your Stamp-a-ma-jig. I never would have know that was faux Washi tape! What another great idea to color a piece of vellum. There are lots of fun Wow ideas here! Thanks so much for playing along with the Creating Pretty Cards Sketch Challenge over at Craft Project Central!
