5. Rub Tea Dye ink over the surface and cover both image and background. Wipe the ink from heat embossed parts to get the finished piece. Stamp the frog, heat emboss it with black powder, color with markers and hand cut. Glue it near the image with 3D foam glue.

6. Stamp the sentiment with black ink. Add some random pearls over the card. Trim the stamped piece and glue it over your green basic card.

    Such a beautiful card and a wonderful idea for the background – I’ve always wondered if I could do use the left over pieces of rubber – thank you Irit – I will be making my own mosaic stamps in future x

    Have religiously kept my offcuts to do this but haven’t tried it yet! Lovely image of the flower & frog

    Beautiful! I made one of these mosaic stamps a couple years ago and only used it once. I must dig it out! Your background looks fabulous! I love the little frog too!
