Default TLC204 Faux Mosaic

Get out your papers, tacky tape, embossing powder...cause we're gonna make a mosaic...the EASY way.

I saw THIS card by Kathy Torrence a/k/a curlycurlyhair and was reminded about this forgotten technique. It's really very easy to do. Kathy has done a step-by-step tutorial which can be viewed HERE.

There are really only 4 things you will need for today's technique:
Cardstock or patterned paper
Tacky Tape or something similar that can stand up to heat embossing
Embossing Powder
Heat tool

The steps are simple, but yet yield such a fun effect
  1. Tear or cut your pieces of cardstock
  2. Remove one side of your tacky tape and affix it to a piece of cardstock, covering the entire surface
  3. Remove the protective film revealing the sticky stuff and lay your torn or cut pieces of cardstock or patterned paper, leaving some space between each piece
  4. Once you have applied all of the paper or cardstock, pour embossing powder over the piece. The embossing powder will stick to the sticky spaces not covered with paper. Shake or tap off excess embossing powder and heat emboss.
  5. Complete your card as desired.
Some other ideas might be to try cutting your pieces with decorative scissors or use punched paper or cardstock to create a design for your decorative piece (think stars, hearts, leaves)


To view my sample click HERE.

To view all the samples using this technique, click HERE

Don't forget to use the KEYWORD TLC204 (no spaces) when you upload your cards.

Hint for next week: Where'd she go?

I turned on the computer to check out today's challenge and see it was just posted. Cool, maybe I can be one of the first to get my card in today. I have done this technique before but it has been years and years since I have tried it. Well, off to my craft room to give it a go.

Oh, I like this. Haven't done it for a while. I often do it with shrink plastic.
Once I forgot to make sure that my base tape was heatproof, and it curled up a bit - but still looked good enough to send. DH coming home for lunch today with a letter for me to deliver to his insurance company, so I won't be back for a while - but I'll be planning. Fun .
