Chalkboard Mosaic

Good Morning! Today I want to share with you a card which I created based on a sketch which I designed for today's new challenge at CAS colours & Sketches, so it's kind of all my own work! I do like to be a bit different and I decided that there were not many cards around which use triangular layouts so I came up with the one below

I wanted to use Mosaic Madness stamps and I combined them with a sentiment from Big Day done use the chalkboard technique. I played around with the mosaics, mixing colours and designs but finally settled for blocks of colour with the same repeating pattern.

I hope that you don't think that the chalkboard is not really CAS, I think it is since the design is uncluttered and has lots of 'white space' which, in this case, is black! I kept the whole card front quite flat this time.

 I did, however use a Kraft coloured mat beneath my chalkboard and popped that up on foam pads to enhance the chalkboard idea.

I really enjoyed making this card. It is quite different from others I have made and I think you could use it for male or female recipients. 


  1. I've been so looking forward to seeing your card and what you had in mind when you designed this sketch. I love your chalkboard and mosaic of colours. Thanks for a thought provoking and challenging sketch.

  2. The chalkboard looks terrific, and the black really highlights the colorful mosaic images. I have to agree with Jane that it was a challenging sketch, but it's also a very interesting and unique one!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
