Mosaic Tilda experiment

I was trying out a technique that I'd seen in a tutorial (can be found here), but I don't know that I am very happy with the result. Maybe it's that the image is not the right one for this technique.
I would appreciate your thoughts. Somehow (however I did it), I also got the mosaic part over at least one of Tilda's eyes too! Apologies for the photo (used my mobile - I didn't know it had a flash on it lol)

Image stamped on watercolour paper, & watercoloured. Then mosaic technique used. Papers are Bazzil & Kate Knight, both distressed so they are more in keeping with the aged effect of the mosaic. Card was inked with Distress inks, & stamped randomly using a flourish stamp.

Right, I must get to sleep now. I have a great book to finish, & after only 3 hours sleep last night I am very tired - my cat brought me another baby rat from the nest she has found in the field, but she doesn't kill her presents to me. Unfortunately, she drops them on the floor for me to appreciate! In the early hours of this morning, she put the well nourished baby rat on the floor by my bed! 2 hours later, after finally cornering it I managed to trap & kill the very unwelcome present. Suppose I should be grateful that she leaves them on the floor, not on me (urgh thought)

tfl, & for your thoughts on this card.

Sounds as though Mia is back on form then....Rats!
George used to do the same thing, even squirrels, though, used to eat them...Oh! Yes.
I also found, if George put a rat/mouse down, l used to praise him, stroke him, then pick the creature up, saves chasing it round the house and flush it down the loo. Make sure you put on a gardening glove on first....! ;0
