My First Ever House
There is a new swap on Hels Crafty Angels where we will be making houses to swap and then we will have our own little streets - what a lovely idea! Anyway, I was a bit nervous about joining in cus I'd never made a house before! I designed my own house template and then went from there. The first one I made went straight in the bin, it was really awful! Eventually I made this one, which has got the distress inks peeled paint, broken china and a touch of worn lipstick dabbed onto the background and I then went round the edges with my copper leafing pen. I used this lovely stamp from The Artistic Stamper as the main focal point and added a grungeboard crown to him. I then found this hand which was part of another stamp which I thought would be fun to put in the roof and looks like its trying to nick his crown!!! I really enjoyed making this house but I'm not sure about what to do for the next nine!!!!!!
