Template: Lauren Meader, 'My Timeless Templates' for Papertrey Ink - 'Home Made'
Paper: Scenic Route
Here's the 'back' of the house - aren't those little dormer windows cute?
The windows are quickly hand-drawn, somewhat wonky (on purpose, honest) windows - the house looks lovely with perfect stamped or measured windows and door but I wanted something a little more casual and quirky. I've just drawn them on kraft and coloured them with white gel pen. No rulers, no measuring, just wonky!
Here's the 'front' with the top removed.....
and the back! This would be wonderful filled with biscuits or cake - the sort of gift you might give to neighbours to share with their family. The box isn't large (only about 6 inches wide/high) but it would make such a pretty little gift. I shall be making more of these before Christmas - they're so easy, thanks to Lauren's hard work, and I just love the finished product. I might even make some 'proper' doors and windows!
I used some Snow Writer and glamour dust for a bit of wintery sparkle, just here and there so as not to overwhelm everything. I may be could have added a little more to the dormers and the peak but, hey, it's okay as it is.
And don't you love that roof? It comes as a digi stamped set with the template - how cool is that? I've added some extra dimension by shading around the shingles with a warm grey copic.
This is going to be my entry for this week's Sweet Stampin Challenge, where the theme this week is 'Anything but a card'.- I hope the roof will qualify as the (digi) stamped something.
Back tomorrow with another Christmas offering - a card this time, though. And on Monday, I've something special to show you, so don't forget to check back.
