colourQ challenge #192

A geometric pattern is the inspiration photo at the colourQ - that is for me!

So I fiddled round with tiny paperstrips to recreate the pattern and I am quite happy with the result - it was worth my time  - what do you think? I left out the black squares - I wanted it to be a bit softer....

The die cut is from Memory Box - Chloe Stem, Hero Arts Essential Messages. Here is a close up:

This is my second post today, but I did not wan tot miss the deadline for the challenge... I wish everybody a good night! Yawn....

Very pretty! Wow, this took lots of patience but worth it. I like the black out too.

I love this - and that you took the time to do it. I saw a LO once with mosaics and thought it would be cool on a card. Somehow. Great job.

I like it! I don't know if it is intentional of not, but I like how the tiles aren't totally lined up so you can see some shadows around them, and that the space between tiles varies a bit. Makes it very realistic, and emphasizes it's handwork and individual tiles.
And to that random pattern is great - I always find it hard to make a semi random pattern, involuntarily I do sort of use a pattern (after 2 whites I want another colour etc).
I love the die cut too.

Hallo Cornelia!
Deine Karte ist wunderschön. Diese "Flechterei" war bestimmt sehr arbeitsintensiv.
Liebe Grüße Sigi

Oh my goodness, you are amazing! I thought about doing what you did but that thought only lasted less than a second. This is one amazing card, you are one amazing crafter too. Love it!

Eine tolle Karte!
War bestimmt eine ziemliche Tüftelei, all die kleinen Quadrate zusammenzusetzen!! Mir gefällt sie total gut!
