Hope you're all having a wonderful week and here in London, we've finally got some warm weather!! After a very long winter, it's so lovely to finally see the sun shine and see the blossom appear on the trees...it's the little things that make me so happy!
And to celebrate the fact that spring has finally arrived, I thought it would be fun to create a project using some of my favourite Tim Holtz products to create a piece that would contain all the colours of the season and of course, a crazy cat and his feathered friend!
To create a little more interest to the background, I also added some Ranger Texture Paste through the Chevron Layering Stencil and through the Splatters Layering Stencil and some torn tissue wrap which I just applied using Collage Medium, blending a little more crayon over the surface of both.
After a few flicks of Distress Paints ~ Black Soot, Picked Raspberry and Picket Fence I then added some doodles around the edge to create a border and some gold foiling.Crazy Cats and Mini Bird Crazy Stamp sets. I coloured both of these using Distress Markers before die cutting them with the corresponding die set and attaching them to my background, together with cheesecloth, floristry fibres and twine.
28 Lilac Lane Minty Fresh Button Embellishment set! The colour of these embellishments are just perfect and they match Tim Holtz's Distress products so well ~ you must check out the whole range as they are a must have to any crafter's stash!
...and here is the finished project, matted and layered on coloured card!
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you've loved this little piece of spring!
See you all soon ~ love Emma xx
