Bloggers Challenge – Techniques

Good morning!  Today's Bloggers' Challenge was to pick a technique to do.  I just had my Technique Class last week, so I chose one of those cards to feature!  I showed everyone how to do the Mosaic technique I learned from Technique Junkies.

I chose my colors from the stripe in Thoroughly Modern Designer Paper.  I used Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede cardstock to complement it.

The base card is Bermuda Bay, then I laid down a 2" strip of Sticky Page and added my mosaic pieces.  The grout lines were filled with Gold Embossing Powder. 

The focal point I stamped the wreath in Soft Suede and the berries in Melon Mambo.  The bow was added with the Melon Mambo marker.  This piece was layered on Soft Suede and then Melon Mambo cardstock.  I cut the little bird from Merry Details Sizzlet Die in my Big Shot!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!  Should be a good football game on tomorrow with Ohio State playing Penn State!  Go Bucks!

Great card- I love your technique- very pretty card! 
 I have a daughter that is a Junior at Ohio State- at least one person in my family will be happy in regards to their football team!  Maybe two (son loves Farve/Vikings), but he goes to Illinois and they are having a terrible season….Husband is a Chicago Bears fan……… maybe he will be happy…..just maybe……….
