Whew! Boy did I start today's project late! But I finished before my deadline, so YAY me! Since I have been spending more time on the computer lately I have been checking out more blogs, too. I was looking at Jessica's Stampergarten the other day and saw THIS card using a faux mosaic technique. Hmmmm....never tried that one before, seems simple enough, so I went for it. I was very careful to only use the technique and not CASE anything directly and here is what I came up with:
I started this project somewhere around 9 pm and it took me nearly three hours to complete. That is mostly because I decided to do a flower with tons of little pieces...and I wasn't sure on the design. I am learning that it sometimes takes me FOREVER to get a new idea down in paper! I sure hope this 30 day challenge exercises my brain well enough that I will become much faster at this!
Here are the details: The whole flower image was pieced by me. I cut basic shapes down into smaller pieces to create the image, then embossed with light blue embossing powder in all the open areas. I used the scallop edge punch to make a frame on the side and put a cardstock sticker strip in the window to peek out. I mounted the Friend sentiment on white and red ovals using brads. Overall, I kinda like this card! It makes me happy! I will try to find solid adhesive sheets next time though...all I had was strips of Tacky Tape which left a sort of picket fence effect in the embossing. It sorta adds some charm though, don't ya think???
Colors used: Wild Wasabi, Bashful Blue, Real Red & So Saffron
