Modern Neapolitan

I had to go back and double check all my posts to make sure I hadn't already posted this for you, it is from a looong time ago, but I apparently I never did! I cranked out so many mosaics when this set first came out I didn't have time to show them all before our next release came around LOL! This "Inspiration Mosaic" sample used "100% Sweet"s sundae as it's focal point, all the layers of a sundae were perfect for this color blocking concept! When you cut it out and mount it over the white rectangle it looks like it's sitting on a place mat, and really pops out from the other panels colored in all these yummy sundae colors (all colored with Copics, no paper piecing here)! I colored the bottom of the strawberry dark brown and added a little glaze to make it look chocolate dipped. :) This time I trimmed the mosaic exactly on the edge and then did the matting a little differently with a thick fudge stripe (Pure Luxury Chocolate Kiss) along the bottom and a little punched square at the top corner for balance. Base is cherry, I mean Rocket Red! ;)

I am SO excited, the "Inspiration Mosaic" set will be featured in a publication's "Favorite Products" section in a just a few weeks, I have been on pins and needles waiting for this one to come out! :) Any guesses which??
Hope your day is super sweet!

How exciting for you, Mel. I'm thinking the it's Paper Crafters. This is such a cute card too. I LOVE "Inspiration Mosaic" stamp. I've used it quite often in my card making. You're the bomb!

This is YUMMY! Did you do something special when coloring in the mosaic shapes? they have a suede, creamy, slightly textured look to them that just reminded me all the more of ice cream! lol Of course, I've had ice cream on the brain for the last couple of weeks anyway! heehee I'm using the excuse that the "Baby" wants it - maybe to add on the weight before birth? Aaahhhh - gotta love self-justification sometimes, eh? ;)

Yummy card Mel, I wish I were close enough to an ice cream shop to get a sundae for myself. You are making me hungry darling!
