Great card! Don't have this set - adding it to my "fun" list - but will try with another frame set! Thanks for sharing.

Oh this is fun and I'm definitely giving it a try. Who would have ever thought?! Gina did a vid a few weeks ago about coloring in the leaves on a piece of pattern paper. It would be fun to incorporate the two and see what I come up with. Thanks for the great idea. Easy with fab results! I'm really happy I have this stamp set!

This is such a fun technique. I have done it with the Fabulous Frame set, but never with the Inspiration Mosaic. It's a great look, and I will definitely give it a try.
