You Are Super Awesome (Giveaway Winner Announcement)!

Hello friends!
It's time to announce my blog appreciation giveaway winner!!
Out of 134 comments, the random winners are....(see bottom of this post)! 
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Today I am sharing a card with some coloring, but not really...
Have you met one of these Pico Embellishers?

Today I am using three of them (pink, New Sprout, yellow) to color the diamond image.
super awesome
I stamped a simple design with Neat and Tangles' stamp "Heart of Gold" with Delicata. After that, I embossed the image with gold embossing powder. And did you know....you can use Pico Embellishers to color the images!! Because the image was embossed, it was super easy and fun to add colors to the small triangles within the heart. This design reminds me of the mosaic structures that I saw in Barcelona, Spain.
Aren't they inspiring? These photos were taken from Casa Mila. These are actually chimneys!  There are twenty-eight chimneys in several groupings and they were twisted so that the smoke came out better, two half-hidden vents whose function is to renew the air in the building. Casa Milla was the last civil work designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí, built between the years 1906 and 1910. Gaudi's most renown work is the magnificent Sagrada Familia (see my previous post here). We had the best time when we were in Barcelona in 2013. It is such a fascinating city.

Last but certainly not the least... Thank you for the wonderful respond and positive feedback.

Congratulations to all the winners. Think Anja is right, you should go to Switzerland & Germany, then share all your photos here. Those chimneys in Barcelona are magnificent. Brilliant use of the mosaic technique...kind of like your lovely card. It's just so beautiful. You really put those embellishers to good use.

What a great idea to use these Pico Embellishers to color the heart which was inspired by the mosaic patterns from Barcelona's Casa Mila. Just fabulous how you combine the traveling impressions with your creating!
