Mosaic Thank you

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Kind of a laid back day for me. After church we had lunch and then I had some free time. Imagine that (lol)!!
I decided to try a card technique that I saw demonstrated at a rubber stamp show a few weeks ago. You use glossy paper, reinkers, alcohol and some felt. The colors I used would create sky, water and sand. I wanted to create a beach scene.
I sort of liked how it turned out, but I need to practice some more. I ran out of time before we went out this evening. I also need a little darker color for my sky and possibly a little lighter color for the water.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for 2 challenges and they are both inspiration challenges. One is the Saturday inspiration challenge #402 on Splitcoaststampers.
Stef sent us to the  Winter Water Factory for our inspiration. Lots of inspiration and as soon as I saw this Tennessee Tote in navy, it reminded me of the new Stampin-Up mosaic punch and embossing folder.

And the other is the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger, "I'm Craving Navy" inspiration. Love it that my card works for both inspiration challenges. I picked up on the navy theme for both challenges.
I used night of navy for my color scheme. The background embossing is done with the Stampin-Up "mosaic madness" embossing folder. I punched my shapes from Stampin-Up night of navy designer paper.

Punched a few flowers and added some pearls randomly. To complete my card, I die cut a pennant and used an old Stampin-Up rub-on for my sentiment that I found in my stash.

Well that's it for me for today. So until next time......... God bless. 


  1. Love your card Mary!! Those mosaics are so pretty, on my want list :) Really makes a very cool sense of motion the way you places them!

  2. Hey Mary! Thanks for linking this up to this week's Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)

  3. Oh, so pretty Mary. Love the mosaic background and the different blue hues on the punched out elements. Great take on the photo.

  4. I love the bold navy designs against the white background! Very pretty! I can't wait to see your new technique!!
