12 Tags of 2012 - March

I was keen to give this technique a go.  You can see Tim Holtz’s tag here.

I didn’t add Glossy Accents to my mosaic pieces because they were from something I had printed on glossy photo paper (discovered at the very bottom of my scrap paper drawer).  The image was of NZ Paua Shell and the colours were just perfect.

I cut two different butterfly shapes on my Silhouette and because I don’t have any distress embossing powder, I decided gold would look pretty good.

The tag was distressed with coffee and edged with Walnut Stain distress ink.
