Wish you were here....Stained Mosaic Technique

I still wish I were there!!!! I loved my family trip to the Bahamas. AND I am so ready for the summer and the beach....I am always ready for the beach. Anyway, I made this card using my A*Muse stamp sets: Sea Shells, Mesh background, and Life's a breeze. I used Memento Rich cocoa, A*muse Latte, and A*Muse french roast ink. Other supplies used were french roast twine, Sky CS, sponge daubers and BG10, E31, W2 Copic markers. I used a stained mosaic technique that I got from splitcoast stampers here:

YIKES! ***I almost forgot...you NEED versamark and clear embossing powder!!!!!!****Otherwise, you cannot do this technique....

I hope that you like this card. I had so much fun making it and have wanted to try this technique with sea shells. I have done it with flowers....but really wanted to try it with a shell set. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. If you like what you see, you can get all of the products from my website. Thank you for looking!
