So I am loving playing with houses right now. I wonder if it’s because I have been away from home so much over the past few weeks and my subconscious is telling me to appreciate the times when I am at home? Whatever, I love making these and can’t wait to share the other two projects that are in the pipeline right now. Today’s house is a smaller version of the one that I made yesterday and has a very different colour palette:
This is made the same Artful Dwelling’s die set I used yesterday but is the next size down. It was also the house that I made when I should have been tidying up and then tackling an enormous pile of ironing. I’m sharing this over at Sunday Stampers, where the theme is “natural colours and elements” and also at City Crafter Challenge Blog for their “use a house” theme.
I covered the house with card and then coloured it with Distress Inks – Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap plus Vintage Photo for the roof (don’t get me started on that again!!). I used a dictionary page stamp and Vintage Photo on the main part of the house and then added some little dots using Walnut Stain.
I used the Dylusions border stamp and more Walnut Stain to create the roof. The door was cut freehand and inked with walnut Stain. I’ve stamped some little flowers in black. The window is another stamp and I’ve added some little flowers that I cut from a scrap piece of lace.
Thanks for buzzing by.
