So, finally I get to play at Tim's Tag for March - love his version with some well placed mosaics!
My first background stamp I chose - I don't have anything wood-grainy like Tim used - was a disaster (too much pattern and I used a colour too similar to the mosaic scraps) so whilst tonight's dinner was cooking I found an alternative.
So, the background I used is a Hero Arts one called 'sparkle background' and it is quite old - though judging from the state of the red rubber, hardly used!! I've certainly not used it horizontally.
The butterflies are ok for a first attempt at mosaic - I nearly forgot to add the glossy accents - but I did find a tub of embossing powder in the right colour - cement - mine is by PSX so that is very old too!! I bought loads and loads of different colour embossing powders when I first started stamping - now I use clear, sometimes black and maybe an irredescent one - and that's it... but I like this one!
I am running low on Tim's foliage idea-ology so I just used this little flower charm by Mei Flower that I bought at Stevenage a few weeks ago.
I have to say, I really like having longer to get these 12 Tags done - much as I loved the 12 Tags of Christmas - it was very restrictive time-wise (I hated not doing them on the right day!) so thanks for the fresh look to this year long challenge, Tim!! Do go and check out the other entries - there are some beauties and it's only the 8th March - you have all month.
Now back to my latest obsession - messing about in my journal (though I have some other challenges I want to do this week too...) roll on the weekend!
