12 Tags in 2012 - March

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!


  1. great tag! I never thought to run the butterflies through my Xyron. I didn't have any of the sticky sheets he used so didn't get to emboss mine. I love the way the woodgrain embossing folder looks on your tag!

  2. thank you for your comment on my blog! your tag is beautiful. i love the colours. your idea to make this tag is great!
