12 tags of 2012- March

Hey there! As I mentioned the other day I was going to work on my March tag for Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of 2012. I really loved the tag that Tim created this month because he used two of my favorite things: woodgrain and butterflies! Yay! Here's my take on the March tag:

It was a bit of trial and error trying to achieve the mosaic look on the butterfly because I don't have any of the Wonder Tape that he used which is pretty much key to creating the effect. So, I thought I'd be clever and emboss my butterfly first and then paste my little paper pieces....ummm that was an error! The paper wouldn't stick to the rough surface at least not with Tombow or Glossy Accents! So I dusted off most of the embossing powder and tried again...a little better, but still not what I had envisioned...good enough! I like this little tag and did not have any cool metal embellishments to add to it, so stamped it and called it a day! I've been looking at it for a few days trying to decide if I wanted to add a bit more to it, but decided - Nope!
