Orange and Grey Mosaic - MMS16


Good Morning,
Today's card is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge number 16. On first view it looked a very straight forward layout but, there were a few different elements which made it fun.
This card is also going into the STV colour challenge - guess what that is!!!

Stamps: GKD Inspiration Mosaic, the little girl is a no name from Art Stamps Australia as is the pretty little spray.
Ink: Memento, Tuxedo Black, VersaColor, Sky grey with the image coloured with Copics.
Card: Bazzill Grey, GKD PL Layering Weight, DP, Basic Grey Romani Caravan and SU grey flower and polka dot.
Embellishments: Dew Drops, Flower Brads, Silk Flowers and two punched Swirls.

My Base card is Bazzill Grey.
Next layer is the GKD PL which I embossed with Birds and Swirls. The grey polka dot strip across the card was also embossed along with the orange and grey squares with a Swiss dots EF before being added to the background.

The Mosaic was stamped onto the Caravan DP ( I actually cut the size down a little to fit this layout). Two of the segments were covered with the floral grey from SU. Another segment was stamped with the little heart spray. Once the image was stamped and coloured this was added to the mosaic with foam tape followed by the orange corner frame.
The mosaic block is mounted onto more of the Bazzill grey then added to the background with more foam tape. The flower and swirls were positioned in opposite corners and lastly the three dew drops were attached.

Thanks for dropping by today.
Till next time.......
