What a great house! And great use of your stamps to come up with it! i love all your extra embellishments, the fence, the mushrooms and your little queen and knight!
This is totally fabulous! I hope you're planning to keep it as a permanent decoration and inspiration in your craft space. TFS. Daria
Oh my gosh...so cute. Love your dwelling! The soft colors and texture make it fabulous.
Super card! I love your dwelling with the mushroom chimneys. Great job!
Oh you are so creative I would have never thought of using the stamps that way !!
LOL, Sadie! My first thot upon viewing was the nursery rhyme "there was a crooked man..."
I love what you built & really appreciate you sharing your thinking & how-tos! Wonderful, pal!

I used some stamps I have that were originally supposed to be used as the under part of flower stamps. So I stamped a bunch of them in pumice stone distress ink and cut them out. Then I arranged them on my craft desk to get a feel of how they might fit together.
I made the background out of white cardstock and used green and a couple blues of distress ink to color it. I cut out a fence border and inked it.
Then I used pop dots and glue and stuck the cut out stamps down. Then I drew and colored windows and a door, cut them out, arranged them and glued them down. I used some acrylic paint and modeling paste to make dimension on the roof and a couple of the rocks.
Then I dug around in my stamps looking for something small enough to actually live in this house. I found a queen and knight which I stamped, colored, and cut out. Then I found some tiny mushrooms and stamped, colored, and cut them out for along the sides of the house.
Thank you for looking.
