Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew: Mosaic Madness Edition! We are excited to share ideas with you for using the Mosaic Madness stamp set. And, frankly, I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone has created!
I'm sharing three cards with this hop...
As you just saw, I chose to pair up the Kinda Eclectic stamp set with Mosaic Madness. When creating a series of cards to display together, I love to create with a common color palette. For these cards, the palette contains Blackberry Bliss, Pool Party, So Saffron, Old Olive, and Sahara Sand...what a sweet five color combo!
Here's a closer look at the cards:
The background on the Whisper White was created using my Sahara Sand and Pool Party ink pads...can't get much easier than that!
The speckling effect comes from very lightly stamping on the Sahara Sand.
You can really make out the shape of the So Saffron ink pad on this card front!
Notice the starburst in the middle of the punches out mosaic shape? I had done a bunch of random stamping and that is simply where the patterns ended up merging. I'm loving how different the shades of Blackberry Bliss look on the Whisper White and then stamped off onto the So Saffron...almost looks like two different colors but alas it is just one!
What do think the mosaic mounted on an angle? My vote is that it looks whimsical...perhaps you agree!
It is askew because I decided to align the Pool Party ink...that is the real reason it is tipped to the side!
