Inchie Plus mosaic tiles

I took time yesterday to make a card for this week's CAS challenge over at Splitcoast - the challenge was to show off shades of green. I needed some thank you cards, so I decided to stamp a stack of them...

I used Inchie Plus squares from Inchie Arts - these are 1.5" matboard squares, and they're a great size for smaller cards like this, especially in this arrangement of 4.  I used one of the stamps from this set:

Rotating Repeat Tiles - Pattern

I love the hand cut look of these - and they have a batik look to them, which is dear to my heart as well. I positioned the stamp on my MISTI to the corner, then laid my Art Squares 1/4" in and down so they'd be sure to be covered in the design. I inked the full stamp up with Memento ink, then used a Distress or Zig marker to color over a few detailed areas... this method is waaaaay less tedious than trying to color every section differently.

I branched out in color as I went along - love the contrast in these too. 

I've got another fun Inchie project coming at you next week! Can't wait to share!
