The current challenge over at Anything But A Card has a colour theme:
Be sure to hop on over and see what the Design Team have been up to. The super talented Julie has made the most fabulous scarf. Here’s my design team piece:
I cannot take any credit for the idea for the design of this house, there is a fabulous tutorial over on the Calico Crafts blog which I followed, just using the Anything But A Card challenge colour pallette instead. I fell in love with the original, designed by Trish, which had a cute little bunny with a huge carrot!
Instead of attaching the house to a plain base I decided to use a cheese box and painted this in excatly the same way as the house. Once all the layers were painted, I added a coat of clear crackle paint.
I added some natural Icelandic moss around the base of the house, glued a piece of leaf ribbon trim up the side and then topped it off with a little paper daisy that I had coloured pink with Worn Lipstick distress ink.
The little pink flowers you can see dotted amongst the moss I picked up from Ebay ages ago, I think they are made from fimo. To make the “believe” sign I stamped out the word on to some wood effect card, cut it out, attached it to a a small piece of driftwood and then sanded the edges and corners so they fused together.
I didn’t add any glitter, but that doesn’t mean to say I won’t at some point! That moss looks really pretty with glitter sprinkled in it.
I hope you’ll join us over at Anything But A Card, there’s still a whole week left to go so plenty of time to get your entry in. Thanks again to Trish and the Calico Crafts Blog Design Team for the inspiration.
