Etsy Inspired #31

Hey!!!! It's Saturday morning...and you know what that's Etsy Inspired day!!!! Today's store is Make Mine Mud. She makes the most adorable clay art pieces, tiles, buttons, pots, etc.

I used these pieces, Mosaic Tiles, as my inspiration.

This is the card I'll give to my parents on Sunday for Easter...hope they don't see this post before then.....

The card base is Kiwi Kiss cardstock and I used one of my new Spellbinders Impressabilities to create the embossed background. They are really thin..and bend easily, so if you have them, be careful with them. I used the following sandwich....from the bottom up in the Big Shot...Multi-purpose Platform, Tab 1, Cutting Plate, Embossing Plate, Card base, silicone sheet, Emboss plate.

The stamped images are from Rubber Stamp Tapestry. My LSS carries a few so I can get my fix inbetween stamp expos or ordering online. I stamped the pots and sentiment in Chocolate Chip...the flowers in Pixie Pink, Pink Pirouette, and Yoyo Yellow (one of those colors I never pull out)...and the leaves in Always Artichoke. I achieved the varying degrees of color by stamping multiple times before reinking.

The DP is "Urban Prairie" by Basic Grey. For embellies I added "Peony" Dew Drops to the base, and "Cotton Candy" and "Yellow" Stickles to the flowers.
