Summer Mosiac

I was inspired to create a collection of Inchie images over the 4th of July weekend, and when I decided to use that theme for Wee & Whimsical Wednesday, this Summer Mosiac card came together quickly! First, I grabbed nine White Inchie Squares from Inchie Arts. Next, I pulled out my Lockhart Stamps and decided which ones really said "SUMMER!" to me. I chose several Itty Bittys, including Cupcake, Ice Cream Cone, Plant Stakes, Pear, Pie, Cherries and Sand Pail. I couldn't leave out the Bowl of Strawberries or the Picnic images, either, so I used my Inchie Finder (a pre-cut 1" square of tinted acetate, that is perfect for identifying a certain part of a pre-stamped image; it is packaged in the Inchie Papers.). Because I really wanted these Inchie Squares to pop, I colored them with Copics and placed them all on a black piece of paper. The finished card is 5" square.

I would love to see your Mosiac cards, so post a link if you get a chance! In the meantime, be well!
