2012 Technique Calendar - December - Sparklie Mosaic Stamping

To finish off this years calendar I thought it would be fun to do some mosaic stamping with a sparklie twist....

2012 Technique Calendar
Sparklie Mosaic Stamping


Rubber Die Scraps
Glitter Glue


1. First you're going to need to cut up your rubber scraps to make mosaic stamps.  I like to make a variety of shapes in all different sizes so I have lots to choose from.  When I make my mosaic stamps I usually go with wavy, uneven edges - they are easier to cut ;)  Of course you can make your mosaic stamps any shape you like.

2. Now it's time to start stamping.  I usually work with 3-4 complimentary colors for my theme and just start stamping.  I try to vary the shapes and colors - over lapping some and not others.  It's all up to you.  If you like more structure you can work in a defined pattern or you can go totally random. 

Note:  You will want to keep a cloth on hand to wipe off any excess ink from your stamps since you'll be using them over and over with different colors.

And here is what my mosaic looks like after stamping....

3. Now it's time for the sparkle!  I am using Stickles Glitter Glue that matches the colors of ink I used.  You could go with a clear glitter glue that would highlight the color and just add sparkle or go with the colors like I did here.    If you don't have any Stickles you can always go with glue and glitter.  Remember, use what you have!
