Mosaic Card by Trish

One of my newest downline, Trish, made this cute Mosaic card that I wanted to share with you.

This is a great technique that Trish learnt when she attended an advanced technique class that I ran earlier in the year.

This is how she did it:
  1. Run the base cardstock through a Xyron machine (you could also use spray adhesive, this is just less messy!) and then peel away the protective sheet to reveal the sticky cardstock underneath.
  2. Randomly snip shards of coloured cardstock and apply to the sticky side of your cardstock (leaving space in between each piece for the “grout”).
  3. Once you have all the shards of card stuck in place, sprinkle silver embossing powder over the entire piece and shake off the excess powder.
  4. Using the brush, carefully brush any excess powder off the coloured shards of card and emboss thoroughly.
  5. Cover the entire piece with Versamark ink, (make sure you put the lid back on the Versamark so that any flying powder doesn’t end up in the pad) then sprinkle card with clear embossing powder and heat.
  6. She then completed the card by adding a stamp from the Riveting hostess set!
