Today is a BIG DAY

I've made a card using the Simon Says Stamp's Mosaic Star die and Big Day dies ... 
I colored an embossed mosaic star with markers...I LOVE that you can be messy and color outside the lines...once it's under a die cut star, the outside-the-lines doesn't show...yay!!  OK...the big you see raised embossed or a negative(looks like the opposite side of an embossed die)embossed image??...
It depends on when I look at it.  The first time it was embossed, which it IS...but then subsequent times, it LOOKS sunken in.  WEIRD!!!!  A photo that messes with the mind!!  Does it do that with you???  I layered the gray panel a second time underneath for some depth, then adhered the marker colored star under the panel.  I added the sentiment die, that I had die cut in white, then masked and colored with black marker and then layered.  Here's a close up...
I think it's kind of a handsome card...loved coloring all those little mosaic pieces rather than fill with die cut pieces, which is what I normally card!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa


  1. Gorgeous card and amazing technique! Congrats!

  2. Very eye catching, Lisa. I really like the colors you chose; they look awesome together. Now you have me confused about the embossing...I can't decide.

  3. Love this! To me it looks like the squares are sunken in - but it doesn't make sense - I know I should be seeing them as the "pillow" squares that they are when embossed. Fun eye illusion photo!

    Great card - always looking for ideas that can be both male and female!


I so appreciate your comments...thank you, so much, for taking the time to write:)!! Hugs!! Lisa
