Technique Tuesday!!

Welcome to Technique Tuesday!!  

Today I am featuring the Stained Mosaic Technique.  I decided that I didn't want to have to "create" the mosaic stamp more than one time, so I took an old clear block (or you could use a piece of wood), some leftover rubber from my stamps and voila!  A Mosaic rubber stamp!! Just cut pieces of the rubber to desired shape and size and place on clear block, leaving some space between for the "grout".

TECHNIQUE INSTRUCTIONS:  After creating your mosaic "stamp", stamp your image on neutral cardstock.  Use bright colors for best effect.  Ink your mosaic stamp with VersaMark and stamp over your colored image.  Add clear embossing powder, tap off excess, heat with a heat gun until it is melted.  Rub a black ink pad over the image.  Buff image with a paper towel to take black ink off the embossed parts of the image to create the look of grout.  Embellish card as desired.

THANKS and as always...

Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'!
