MOSAIC TILE STAMPING TECHNIQUE
I found a video tutorial on You Tube on a mosaic tile stamping technique by Dawn Otchefske, with Stamping Up. What a clever way to recycle! Use the left over red rubber stamp frames from stamp sets, (you know, the left over rubber after you pushed out the stamps), cutting them up into odd shapes, small and large. Peel off the paper from the sticky side and place them together on a piece of acetate. It's like putting a puzzle together! Using VersaMark or any Embossing pad, pat the rubber stamp and stamp over your picture you want to mosaic. Cover with clear embossing powder or clear Utee, and heat with your heat gun. After it has cooled and hardened, use a dark ink and rub it over and into the crevasses. Use a damp cloth and wipe over the mosaic. See my "Christmas Cardinal" Gift Bag Set (GBS), for an example of the finished project.
