Finally. I did a house that has something to do with the season we are in. I made a house celebrating spring. I wanted a very positive message on the house so I used this stamp – “Let all you do be done with Love.”
I made the house using a technique Anna-Karin wrote about on her blog, Layers of Ink. Basically I did the exact same thing she did only with different colors and I glued the card stock to a Tim Holtz Tiny House. I added more handmade roses and a butterfly from Sizzix Detailed Butterfly Thinlet also from Tim Holtz. I sprayed the butterfly with Ranger Antique Bronze Mica Spray. The brick overlay is from the Sizzix Mixed Media Die #3. The blue flowers are 3 layers of one of the flower punches by Sizzix. They are supposed to look like cornflowers because I love those flowers so much.
One of these days I will take a photo class and get a real camera. I don’t think the house looked good with my backgrounds. For example, some of the photos have too much greenish yellow. The butterfly photo above has the colors about right. I will continue to work on it. I should wait until daytime to take photos, but I was too impatient to get this written.
I would like to share this project with 3 challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge – Based on a Book. This project fits because I used a quote from 1 Corinthians on the front of the little house.
Frilly and Funkie – Welcome Spring challenge. The Spring house welcomes spring with pastel colors and the flowers and the butterfly.
A Vintage Journey – All Aboard. Because I am all aboard for encouraging positivity and love and making the world better.
Thank you for stopping by. I love comments if you want to leave one. It always makes me happy.
