Mosaic Tile Technique

Oops! I was going to post this the other day, and noticed that it was in my "drafts" and left unposted! Sorry about that!

I love stamping, and I am fascinated by all of the fun ways you can use stamps to create many different looks. One of my all time favorite stamping techniques is the “mosaic tile”. I have shared this technique a few years back, but wanted to share it again over at the CardMaker Blog. There are quite a few steps involved with this technique, but if you have the time the results are amazing! The process starts with the creation of your very own custom made “mosaic tile” background stamp. Once you create your stamp, you can use it over and over again to create mosaic tile image panels to be used on cards, gift tags, or any other paper crafting project you desire.

Here is another card I created a few years back using this same technique. The stamp image I used for the card is no longer available, but there are PLENTY of gorgeous floral stamps available (like this fun Poppy Patch set {hyperlink: http://shop.flourishes.org/product_p/ss037.htm} from Flourishes {hyperlink: http://flourishes.org/}) that would be fun to use in combination with this technique.

Give it a try, I think you will love this technique too!
