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:-
