How to create a Stained Mosaic look with VIDEO

Today I have another old but great technique to show you. It is known as Stained Mosaic and it uses those leftover bits of rubber from around your stamp sets.

Just cut up the pieces and stick them on a piece of wood or an acrylic block. You can then use it like any stamp.

Card 1


  • Stamp the rose image from Graceful Garden in Memento Tuxedo Black on Whisper White and colour with the new Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers – Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.
  • Stamp the mosaic block over the coloured image with Versmark and heat emboss with Clear Embossing Powder.
  • Swipe the Smoky Slate ink pad across the embossed panel to ensure the ink gets into all the ‘cracks’. Polish with a dry paper towel to remove any excess ink from the embossed areas.
