It's Back To The Day Job...

Hi folks, we've been enjoying almost 3 weeks of glorious spring sunshine in my neck of the woods and the cubbyhole crew have been spending much of that time outdoors, with one member doing lots of this...
and this...
while the other member has been enjoying lots of days out with her lady who lunches hat on and of course, it goes without saying, we finished off the week by taking time out to enjoy the Royal Wedding and wasn't it amazing.

So I could hardly complain about waking up yesterday to a bit of light drizzle, a little reminder that it was time I was back in my happy place for some playtime with the FABULOUS 3D Texture Fades and Distress Blending Brushes from our adorable Professor...
If you're like me and inclined to rush in where angels fear to tread, I would highly recommend that you watch Tim's video for lots of 3D Texture Fade Embossing helpful hints and tips before you dive in.

and here's the first of many cards I suspect using beautiful Botanical
 I embossed Botanical on to Distress Watercolor card, coloured the amazing texture with Distress Oxide inks using the Distress Blending Brushes and added a generous splattering of Distress Resist Spray.

I die cut flowers from white and black cardstock using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Wildflowers Thinlits and added Idea-ology Small Talk Occasions Stickers.
and check out that TEXTURE, amazing...amazing...amazing.
I'll be back tomorrow to share another Botanical card, in the meantime, have fun whatever you are creating.

  1. Glad you made it back into the cubby Kath to make this gorgeous creation, but the sun is still shinning here so far, hope it's back for you today....
    As for the wedding, can you believe how gorgeous she looked and how happy they were....perfect day, just love it...xx

  2. WOW this is fabulous, these are definitely on my wish list. Hoping to pick up some Sir Tim goodies while I am in America :)
    Have a wonderful crafty week.

  3. You are so right Kath! When I used the plank die and EF for my seahorse tag, I only ran it through twice and have to admit I was a tad disappointed - but after watching the Professor, I now know it was 'user error' - I won't be making that mistake again - lol!!

    I enjoyed every single moment of the wedding too, they are such a lovely couple and I wish them all the happiness in the world.

    Enjoy the rest of your crafty week, with your gorgeous furry companion. Hugs, Anne xx
