Fun with Mosaics!

I had a lot of fun with this background.  I took goldenrod cardstock, embossed a mosaic background from Eureka with clear embossing powder, then sponged the various colors on.  The plan was to then iron off the clear embossing, but, well, I liked the glaze effect!

I am submitting this card for two contests; the Verve Autumn Lovelies challenge,  and the Our Daily Bread Designs "Ink up or emboss your own background" challenge.  I love doing backgrounds.  In fact, I would rather just experiment with backgrounds than make cards!
