My First House

Front of house


Back of house

I am priviledged to be on a lovely friendly little forum where there is much talent and I bravely agreed to join the house swap. So, I have to make 10 of these ickle house they have to measure approx 5 x 3 1/2 inches and include some rubber stamping and we can decorate them as we see fit. Well I cut out 4 houses but only managed to finish 1 I ruined the other 3! I used distress inks dusty concorde and blue china direct to paper I got the idea of using the tag as a door from this months Craft Stamper and a photo turn from 7 gypsies then stuck on a no.5. the template for the house came from Dan it's his own design - isn't he wonderful?
I hope the recipient likes it - 1 down - 9 to go! thanks for looking xx
