Alcohol Marker Mosaic

I created this mosaic tile by starting out with a rectangular piece of mint green cardstock. Why mint green, you ask? Because I have wayyyyy too much of this color. From there, I just colored patches with various Bic fine-tip markers. These are another (cheaper) kind of alcohol marker that are similar to Copics. Then I outlined each patch with a black marker - wait until the first layers of color dry so you get nice crisp lines.  I then covered a few of the patches with glitter glue. Then, I stamped a sentiment in Versamark on a strip of vellum, embossed with black embossing powder and wrapped it around the tile and adhered to the back. Then, matted the tile on piece of black cardstock and adhered to the card with some foam dimensionals. Done! Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave questions or comments below!
