Mono Mosaic for Christmas

Hello Stamping Friends,
Here is Hetty again. Today I want to share my "Mono Mosaic"card with you. I cannot remember if I tried this technique when it came out Dec '05/Jan '06, but it sure is a nice technique. I am happy we do this revival in techniques. There are so many great ones we just forget. Time flies when you are having stamping-fun!
My card is made with stamps by Michael Strong. I used his frame stamp, the Christmas tree and the word stamps. The frame stamp I used for the background squares, stamped and embossed in red.
The tree I stamped on red paper and embossed with clear embossing powder. Thank I took out my metallic rub-ons and used some green and gold. I rubbed it on with my fingers and when finshed i took a soft cloth and the lines of the tree popped up again. I added some pearl gemstones.
The sentiment is stamped and embossed in gold.

I layered the paper with some foam tape to give it a little more dimention. Also I did not glue it sentered, this was to make some room for the ribbon and the sentiment. The pointisetta flower is done with a punch. I hope this gives you some inspiration to try this technique too.
It is easy and fun! See you next time.

PS if you like to see more ideas with this Christmas tree you might take a look at the Michael Strong Blog Hop. You can start at my CraftChaos Blog.

Oooh is that ever lovely Hetty. I love how you smudged the red in some of the corners. It really adds to the dimensional look.
