Time for a new challenge - F

Hi all

Well as you will all know now I am one of the lucky DT on ANYTHING BUT A CARD challenge blog.  Feel chuffed to be picked.

It is week 2 of Challenge 40 




I chose to be challenged and my project incorporates autumn and spring - I think it works and I hope you think so too.

I used a cheap birdhouse from the pound shop, took it apart so working with it was easier.  I painted part gold and the other spring green. I stamped and clear embossed a bare tree on the back, used a sponge to dab TH DI, red, orange and yellow randomly to depict the autumn leaves. I also stamped and clear embossed flowers, butterflies and dragonflies all round and on top of the birdhouse.  I then stuck moss randomly in the same colours using dylusions sprays.  Trouble is the stamps beneath are now not visible lol.  I used a wooden frame and backing to stamp a butterfly, clear embossed also.  I used inka gold to slightly colour it.  The frame was painted in the green, clear embossed and inka gold over the top.  I then put the birhouse back together.

I now must apologise for the copious amounts of pictures - just couldn't make my mind up on this one lol.













Thank you for taking th etime to drop by and I do hope you choose to pop on over to ANYTHING BUT A CARD and join in with this fun challenge

Hugz and love always

  1. I can never resist a little house and how clever to have one side spring and one side autumn. Those autumnal mosses are divine.
