Timeless Mosaic

Hello! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Here is a card I shared at our Gina K release party last week, using my new set, Timeless Treasures and Melanie's new set, Inspiration Mosaic.

Here are some details from making my card...

I started with a piece of Pure Luxury Ivory paper, that I cut just a little larger than the mosaic background stamp. Then I sponged So Saffron, Creamy Caramel and Chocolate Chip around the edges, going closer to the center with the lighter colors.

Then I inked up the mosaic stamp from Inspiration Mosaic with Vintage Photo Distress in from Tim Holtz and heat embossed with elear embossing powder.

Next, I used post-its to mask off some of the sections and sponged more Vintage Photo Distress Ink, using my Tim Holtz applicator tool.

Here it is after sponging the Vintage Photo ink. As you can see, I left the two center panels un-sponged.

Next I used masks again and applied Peeled Paint (green) Distress ink to a few areas.

I again used post-its to mask the panels, before stamping some images from Timeless Treasures, in the background. Then I stamped the hourglass and sentiment on the main panels, using the Vintage Photo Distress ink. I layered with Pure Luxury Chocolate Kiss and Green Apple.
