 I've made a mosaic card.  I don't know if that is a recognised technique or not but I had great fun doing it.  Although I must admit when I was about to cut the card up I did get a bit of a pang in case I got it wrong after all that colouring.  I numbered the backs of each piece as well so I wouldn't forget where they went.  I always did like jigsaws as a child!

I've used the rose from the Birthday Blooms set.  I used SU marker pens to colour the stamp so that I wouldn't get a black ink line around the flowers.  I used Always Artichoke, Elegant Eggplant, Rose Red and an old SU colour Creamy Caramel.  It was stamped onto Whisper White and a touch of Going Gray ink around the edges.  I then mounted it onto two lots of grey cardstock, Basic Grey and Smokey Slate.  A touch of white gel pen and Wink of Stella added a touch of sparkle.  Some of the gorgeous Organza ribbon and some diamantes to finish off.  The sentiment is from the Banner Banter set. I love how this turned out and think I'll be looking for good stamps to make more tiles
.I was pleased then to find a challenge blog which had this picture as inspiration.  I loved the floor tiles and thought my card could be considered tiled!  The challenge is called Time Out Challenges if you would like to play along - you'll find them here.

Happy Crafting
