Woo-hoo! I'm two for two. Sah-weet! Here is my tag for March. Tim Holtz shared a great technique for a Faux Tile Mosaic embellishment on his March tag. Here's my take on it:
My Tim Holtz Wish List is much longer than my Tim Holtz Stash List so again making do with what I have, here is my finished tag:
Instead of a wood grain stamp and brown ink I used a wood grain embossing folder and went for a white-washed look. I don't have any dies that really work for this technique so I stamped a butterfly, cut around the image and put it through my Xyron. The embossing powder I used is called Tapestry and is one I don't think I've ever actually used. With its multi-colored natural grains though I think this was a perfect for the "grout" on my mosaic. The flower were punched out of kraft glassine and colored with alcohol inks then I colored brads to match with the same inks.
Thanks for stopping by!
