The Card Concept Challenge #115- Mosaic Madness


Welcome to another challenge here 
at the Card Concept!
I love these rich warm colors! 

I had bought this stamp from Simon Says awhile back, but I had not used it yet.  I am usually not attracted to this style of stamp, but I had seen so many beautiful cards made with it, I just had to buy it!!! Honestly, I have been a little intimidated by it, so it just sat on my desk.  Until I saw what our challenge would be!
I thought it would be perfect for this challenge!

Here is my card:


I stamped the image with Potting Soil Archival ink onto some smooth white Neenah card stock.


I have also been afraid of colored pencils! I put my big girl pants on and pulled out the Prisma pencils. I found out that I really enjoyed coloring with pencils!!! How about that???



The style of my card would be considered

Classy & Elegant:
Polished
Shiny finish
Sparkling embellishments
Rich color scheme
Sophisticated sentiments
Regal
Sweeping
Dramatic
Monochromatic
Layered Testures
Awe & Impress


I hope I have inspired you to join us here at
