12 Tags of 2012 -- March

I'm in a tag making mood today, so I finally was able to work on the March tag for Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2012. Although the butterflies were a little ditsy to make, I love this tag. The mosaic butterflies are really pretty in real life. It was fun because I got to use a product for this technique that I just had to have several years ago and then never used until today. I had bought the antiquities cement embossing powder during a time everyone was saying how fantastic it was. Well, you know how that story goes. Anyway, I had the cement ep and was able to use it. The one thing I had to change was the background. I don't have the woodgrain stamp, so I used the woodgrain embossing folder with brushed corduroy and embossed the tag. Then I highlighted the wood with walnut stain. Now I can't wait for the April tag.

Your tag turned out great. The mosaic butterflies look really pretty and I much prefer the dry embossed woodgrain background over the stamped woodgrain.
