Mosaic Mania

 I really enjoyed the Mosaic technique from the Technique Junkies newsletter Feb 2012....it reminds me a bit of crazy Patch quilting to put down the DSP and I have lots of that to use up......
 The cute image is Latte Kiki from All That Scraps. The image is colored with Copic markers. I added some Pool Party color to the ribbon with an Aqua painter so it would match the DSP better. The background technique has a glossy coat- you can see that up on the top a bit......  The sentiment was stamped in black and I used the same punch for the backing, just punched it multiple times and trimmed it if needed. That is a little Ric-Rac peeking out from under the ribbon.

Challenges:
Stampalot challenge- Birthday
2 Sisters- Birthday fun
Drunken Stampers- Beverages

 When I look for challenges, I always stop by Feline Playful- they are the best group of ladies EVER!  And, did you know they also list Blog candy and Tutorials?  Yep! 

Have a great day!  Thanks for stopping by!
