Tile Mosaic

I made this monochromatic card with aqua and teal CS, stamping the grid from "Inspiration Mosaic" in teal, and adding the framed flowers images from "Tropical Windows" over it, overlapping the boxes. The crackle stamp from "Bold Flowers" inked up in Versamark create the beautiful texture and illusion of old tiles. The addition of a white mat, focal point and greeting makes everything pop.


Monochromatic cards are great when you need to make something quick and perfectly coordinated, different shades of one color create such a calming, restful look and feel. :)
