Easter Tag and back from the NEC

This is my Easter Tag which I took half completed to the NEC with me and completed it in between meeting and chatting with some lovely folks and doing a bit of demo ing.
The image is from a Tim Holtz paper pad, I thought it had a lovely vintage feel to it.

I covered a tag and die cut shape with distress paints, smooshing it about on a craft sheet. 

Then I inked through some hessian mesh to give a little more interest to the background.
The seam binding was coloured with distress stains.

I die cut flowers from my own home made metal card, embossed them in a folder and painted them with distress paint.
To finish, I made a parchment panel and added a greeting.

This will be entered into the following challenges:-
Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2013
Sugar Creek Hollow - Vintage Easter
Simon Says Stamp - Easter / Spring

Well I'm off skiing now, thank you so much for your kind messages, I will visit your lovely blogs when I get back.

I thought you might like to see my table of goodies at the NEC earlier today and this is me playing.

    Now for a well earned rest (mind you, if we had a mountain here instead of hills you wouldn't need to go far to do some skiing!!!!)
