Mothers Day & New Challenge Blog!!

Hi Bloggers, today I found a new (ish) challenge blog- Country View Crafts Challenge Blog.
And since I am about to blog my Mothers Day tag I made for my Mum I thought I'd enter it into the first challenge which is "Pick and Mix"
I've used salty ocean distress ink on this, and then swished some picket fence and broken china distress paint over the top of it.
I added some tissue at the top, the music one...and smooshed over that too
Then I stamped with picket fence distress paint using indigo blu honeycomb background and dried with the heat gun.
I edged the tag using inka gold in blue...added the die cuts, millinery flowers, beads at the bottom and the pendant thing at the top. I collect old and broken jewellery for things like this, love using them on tags.
Hope everyone is having a fabby day, and it's not too snowy and icy where you are, cos it is here!!!

March Tag

This is my effort for the Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2013- March.
I don't have most of the stuff Tim uses so just had to do my best!

I used the movers and shakers loveheart instead of the bunny, and I hand cut the grass at the bottom. Painting the flowers with distress paint is something I will do again, love the look it gives- it really does look like enamel or something.
Don't have the tattered banner die (yet) so just used a cardstock phrase at the top instead.
This was made into a card for my Aunty's birthday so was put to good use!
