Mosaics, Seahorses, Sequins + a giveaway!

On Wednesday I shared a tutorial on the Hero Arts blog, featuring a technique for paper mosaics. Today I'm sharing another little mosaic card I made from the same batch of paper.


In the video I mentioned that the colors reminded me of the beach and aquariums, so I decided to pair a mosaic background with the seahorse from the Hero Arts Sea Life set. The message is from the Hero Arts + Studio Calico set Darling Sentiments. I thought the seahorse needed a bit of Stickles shimmer. I also played with some super fun sequins I picked up from Neat & Tangled. The "Mermaid's Tail" color goes perfectly with the Hero Arts Pool papers!


Here's my mosaic video, if you'd like to take a look. :-)



And finally, a little giveaway! In the tutorial, I used the Heart Frame die set. It turns out I have two sets! One for me - and maybe one for you!? Just leave me a comment, and I'll draw a winner next Wednesday.

Thanks for stopping by,


PS... Please ignore my boo boo on this card. Gah!
