I really enjoy doing paper mosaics and used a bunch of leaf stamps to make the one I put on this card. Here's a close-up of the mosaic before I cut it into strips to put on the card. You can't tell from the photo, but the cut pieces are very shiny and really do look like pieces of broken china! If you are interested in the steps for making this let me know in a comment and I'll do a tutorial.
I used a tool that I made myself to add some texture to the background and then spritzed a little Melted Chocolate Dylusions spray and Tattered Angels spray to add some more interest and a little bit of sparkle. Here's my tool!!
I use it like a stipple brush...pounce the ends into ink and then onto the card stock. It gives a flecked look to your piece. It's easy to clean, too!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
