Mosaic Butterflies

After seeing Sandra's butterfly tag for Tim's 12 tags of 2012 I thought I had better go and check it out Wow what a fab idea I hooked and spent the day yes they are time consuming to make well I thought so lol , I've used the spellbinders butterfly and gave it my own twist with a ribbon body and wire anteni , I did one on the grungeboard and used distress embossing powder but I'll show that on a card later ;)
These one are done on card from a cereal box 2 are snipped paper and 2 I've used punched shapes
The the white background is that jar of snowflake I bought years ago and never really used but makes a perfect backdrop for the mosaic, 2 darker ones are using some mixed up embossing powders ( you know that little pot you throw odd bits into )
Tip
When heating the EP start in the centre as the tape will shrink at the edges, nice on the grunge as it pulls the wings giving them movement, but looks ugly on the card
Right off to make some fish now

Great idea Von to try them on all the different surfaces.

When you say you're off to make fish??? Do you mean you're going to do some fish ones now? If not, how on earth do you make fish???
