A dream for tomorrow.

This week over at Try it on Tuesdays we have another Alter it challenge and we would like you to show us  some ' Mosaic' on your piece. Please pop over to TioT's for all the details and see what we have been making. We are  sponsered by the Craft Barn with a voucher up for grabs..
Once again I have made a hanging, my friends seem to like them as a change to a Birthday Card, so I wonder where this one will find a home.

The bottom layer  is an off cut from picture frame cutting and makes a firm base.
For the blue layer I swiped the distress ink pad over the paper, I thought it looked a bit like marble close up.
Colours used Antique Linen and Stormy Sky.The mosaic tiles I think were a piece of left over Crowed Attic Paper, these I dabbed over with distress stickles.

All the stamps used are from Studio 490.
 When I'd stamped the heart I gave it 3 coats of clear embossing powder, let it dry, then deliberately cracked the surface.

The little bird is an Alterations die cut.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
