Blessed... Mosaic

Today's card is my second one with Malanie's set and this time I stamped the mosaic block onto plain black card using silver ink.
I started with the embroidered block. Using a piercing tool I punched out the stems, leaves and flowers before adding the embroidered details. I've used Silver, Red and Green Metallic thread.
I've used a specialty paper in black white and silver as well as the red polka dot this time in five other blocks leaving two just plain black. The sentiment, which is fromGKD Showtime Kit thanks a million, was stamped onto red card which was then matted to black before attaching to the main block with foam tabs to pop it up. For the remaining block I spaced four clear gems for some added sparkle.
This mosaic was then attached to a card of Pure Luxury pure white card.
  • Stamps: Inspiration Mosaic by Melanie Muenchinger for GKD. Sentiment -Thanks a million - GKD
  • Card: PL heavyweight pure white, SU riding hood red, dp - doodlebug design inc - Christina Re.
  • Ink: VersaColor - silver.
  • Embellishments - Embroidery - Madeira metallic thread. Martha Stewart clear gems.
As I sit typing this post the light is catching the silver in the specialty paper and I have to say it looks really good - not sure I can capture that in the photo, which is a shame. I'm really happy the way this card turned out though and want to try some other designs with this set.

Till next time.....
