Tim Holtz March tag

This is my take on Tim Holtzs` March tag. He has decided to do a tag for each month instead of the 12 tags of Christmas. February completely passed me by I am afraid so March it is then !. The main technique he showed for this tag was how to make the mosaic butterfly. I have not got the mover and shaper butterfly die he used so I used my spellbinder one. I die cut and did two butterflies but they were a bit too big to both fit on my tag. I used some thickish cardboard with the wondertape adhered to it. I haven`t got the embossing powder he used either so used opaque black. In hindsight I think I should have gone for a more colourful background on my tag to make the butterfly pop, I`m not sure the grungy background tag really matches my butterfly. Shall try another background with the other one. I did really enjoy trying this out however and would definately do this again as it was fairly easy albeit fiddly to do. Thanks for looking x Lavinia


  1. Lovely tag! I love the sentiment you used. I think your background is great for your butterfly. The butterfly really stands out.

  2. Nice work Vinny :)I loved the idea and made a few too lol

  3. Great tag and the mosaic is very effective. A good idea of Tim's to do a tag each month but so far I've not managed to catch up with actually doing them!! plodding on with the aplhas though for CB
