Mosaic Butterfly Card

Supplies:  "Inspiration Mosaic" by M.Muenchinger, Versafine Onyx Black ink, Copics, Dimensional Butterfly stickers from Marcella K, SU Word Window punch, misc. faux jewels and patterned paper.

This week's Featured Stamper is Vera (aka Vera)!  And may I just say that this is one fabulous gallery to go through!!   I was so excited to see so many great ideas, I have a lot of the stamps she has!  One in particular is the the "Inspiration Mosaic" set by Melanie Muenchinger.  Vera uses it quite a bit so I checked out every one!  This is such a versatile set, it's hard to go wrong with it!!  Vera created this very cool "Inspiration Mosaic" card with it and shared a great technique to when using the Mosaic stamp.

You stamp the mosaic onto a single sheet of patterned DP, then color over the different segments in different colored inks!  It works!!  So very fun, and easy peasy!!

I stamped the mosaic stamp onto some scrap DP to test out the technique.  Colored in all but one of the squares with Copics that coordinated with the original pattern of the DP. The original colors of the pattern paper is the square under the pink butterfly in this photo.

Must have taken a whole 90 seconds to do the coloring!!  Then I stamped one of the sentiments from the set and the card was ready to be embellished.  So super easy, I just love the technique, love that set!!  So worth the investment ladies!!

Congrats to Vera and thanks for sharing this technique!!

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
