I'm back!!!! Here is my spring into Easter dt piece for anything goes

Hey there,
Well I have really missed blogging and crafting,but needed the time to look after my family after the sad news,see few posts below for details,the funeral went off as well as can be expected and now we are all just exhausted and needing some restful time, but I am back and raring to throw myself back into crafting and blogging!
The looking after will continue but crafting and blogging will now be my retreat!!!!
So, enough , onwards, it is challenge time over at anything goes challenge again and this time the theme is getting ready for Easter,now this was a challenge for me but here is my dt piece:
I used some fab Tim stamps, wow that man is awesome!!! And some, as yet, under used and un loved distress inks from my set...dried marigold , scattered straw and bundled sage and a spring set of Tim stamps..
I started with my favourite background technique,distress inks, spritz with water , dab off and re add some DI..once dry I over stamped the corner with this fantastic flourish design in bundled sage. The left hand strip was done in the same way.

The butterflies were stamped in black archival and when dry coloured with DI.The sentiment was from another Tim set but I love it!!! The flowers, well,during my blogging absence I have made about 50!!!all ready to go and these were made using movers and shapers tattered floral die...

The watch and chain are from stash...
And finally Mr Rabbit, stamped with black archival onto cream and then coloured with my new Distress marker...Oh wow, have only had a little play but these are fab!!!!well They are Tim's after all!!!!!

Well thanks for all the lovely comments and hope you will be back to follow my crafty journey, now I have returned.
Please pop over to anything goes challenge blog here for all the fab Dt pieces and maybe pop in an entry yourself!!
Also for all your crafty goodies pop across to craft den here.
Have a fab , fun and inky day
