Tutorial - Mosaic

Have you ever wished you could think of a way to use all that extra rubber that's left after you mount your stamps? Try this mosaic technique.

Cut the excess rubber into small pieces. Don't try to make exact squares; variety of shape will add interest.

Mount the rubber pieces onto an acrylic or wooden block.


Apply versamark ink to your new mosaic stamp pad and emboss with clear embossing powder.




Sponge with whatever color ink you want your 'grout' to be.



Note - My first inclination was to use a dark ink like chocolate or black, but I found that a lighter color like caramel works better.

It's different! Not really for me but I could see where it could make some beautiful cards. Thanks for sharing it with us.

I love the technique! Have some stamps where I can use the extra to do this with. Can't wait to try it!

Don't have any left over rubber from the rubber stamps, but the technique will encourage me to do some brainstorming on what else I could use to create what you did
( haven't come up with an idea, yet).
