CASE Study Challenge #154

and here is my card:

I did not choose the bright pretty colors but was inspired by the stamping on pattern paper and the separation on said paper into strips that I think look like tiles.

Now I wouldn't call this a hard card to create but it took me 2 tries to get it right, so on the second try I took pictures of how I did it, so maybe you won't have to make my mistakes! First I cut the white background to an approximate size I wanted for the face of the card, then cut my pattern paper into strip and taped them down on top of my graphed glass mat so that I could stamp my image onto them.

You can see that I numbered the strips, yes, the first go around I mixed up the strips :(  
That's what you get for watching TV while crafting...
So, this time I glued the strips down in the proper order!
Next I trimmed the edges of the mat to fit the front of the card, and then stamped the sentiment. 
It really was an easy card to make....I promise!

I have just completed an art piece to raise money for our town clock, if you would like to see it, please feel free to go here and I sure wouldn't mind a "like" or 2...:) I wonder if anyone will bid on it, it is a little funky, lol I did forget to add what I wrote on the back on the piece in my article, it's dedicated to a young boy, so I'll post the back inscription here
 Kinda hoping that his parents buy it and put it in his room :)
