The Sky's the Limit!

Here's a card that I made for the HMFMC199. I used some SU! cardstock and coordinating designer paper to create the mosaic background. I had quite a few small snippets of the designer paper left, so I cut them into random shapes, and adhered them in a random pattern on a sheet of sticky paper. (I made the sticky paper by running it through my Xyron machine) After placing the pieces on the sticky sheet with gaps in between, I added some gold embossing powder and heat set it, giving the mosaic effect. I tied some matching twine around the top, and added a pre-printed sentiment I had in my stash. The little bunny was colored with Copics and Tombow markers to match the colors of the card base.

I'm also going to share this over at the Snippets Playground #187.

That's it for me today, but thank you for stopping by and I wish you a fabulous Friday!

Hi Carol,
what a very super way to use up snippets.
All that pieced together paper, and then the embossing powder is a super idea, and looks great.
Wonderful image too.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

And just when I thought a mosaic was a mosaic - you take it up a notch by adding embossing powder as the 'grouting'. GREAT idea and a super card Carol!
