March Tag: Faux Mosaic

Here is my March tag for the 12 tag  challenge

Every month he shares a tutorial
and we can link our tag to his blog.
Many variations of the same theme,
this is so inspirational.

This month it is a faux mosaic theme.
I changed the butterflies into birds.
Made my tag more of a spring theme.

Here you can see what I have used to make
this tag. Stamps, birdcage sizzix die, sunray small
embossing folder, Key lime pie glimmer mist, distress ink,
 tool, stain and blending tool. Inside the nest is added 
a little raffia and on the metal flowers a green gemstone.
I also enter this card for the Faux Technique challenge on the 
Have a creative day!

Hi Hetty, this is so creative - I love how you used birds instead of mosaics, and the half-birdcage is so clever! Great job!

Hello Hetty,
I saw your tag on Tim's website and I loved how it stood out from all of the others. Good job.
I am from the states and I like how these links make it possible to see what others are doing all over the world.
