Twelve Tags March

Well I thought I'd better get on with Tim's March tag for The Twelve Tags Challenge, as I won't have much time after CC 101 starts TOMORROW! I'm still not sure how I'm going to keep up, it's a good job that the content is there forever. For this tag I decided to go with birds as I've been using a lot of butterflies in my work lately and I've hardly used the 'Bird Cage' die I bought a while ago. Although the mosaic technique is a bit fiddly I am quite pleased with the results. I've used Kay and Co paper off cuts and I think it looks a bit like vintage china, I'd quite like to have a go at a larger piece. I used a little wood graining stamp I bought some time ago from De Stempelwinkel for the background with acrylic paint. The flowers and birds nest were punched out from my favourite ASBO tape, and coloured with alcohol inks. They're not the same flowers I featured in an earlier post as I thought the colours were a bit bright, so this time I used a mixture of brown and raisin with a touch of gold mixative, to create a kind of copper effect.
