Explore Ancient Rome with Lizzie Jones Challenge. Oh my word! So many options, I have applied embossing paste to A2 size mats which are set off to dry for the faux fresco part of the challenge. This is my take on one of the mosaic variations.
The background was stamped with the Make It Market Co: Beautiful Brushstrokes large flower with Papertrey Ink Harvest Gold, Scattered Straw and Wild Honey Distress Inks. I used the tile stamp with Ranger Clear Resist and heat embossed clear embossing powder over the flower background. Then I used Seedless Preserves Distress Ink over the entire mat, wiping it off with a slightly damp paper towel. The cardstock is all Papertrey Ink Fine Linen. The sentiment "Each Day Provides Its Own Gifts-Marcus Aurelius", also from Ancient Rome mini is stamped on a banner of Fine Linen in Wild Honey Distress Ink.
I think this tile technique will also work really well on patterned paper or print outs of Roman sites, artifacts, etc. And the techniques and stamps are the solution to the problem of scrapping "Latin Days". Major Bonus!! I'm late for the Renaissance and Regency periods lol. Where's my Tardis? : D
