Little Houses

I've made these for a mini house swap being hosted by Carol (who's just started a new blog), on the Docrafts forum. They are ATC sized, with the whole house (including the roof) fitting inside the size of an ATC.
For the top one, I stamped text on the background, added some texture using moulding paste which I then stamped into, gave it a coat of gesso and inked over it. Then I added the image, lace, buttons, fibres and paper flowers.

The second one has an inked and stamped background and I've created a collage using various printed images, lace, paper flowers and brads.


The next one was done in much the same way as the second, but using a different colour combination.

Finally I created my last house using pewter acrylic paint which I heated to create some texture then dry brushed it in copper. I stamped the images on tissue paper and stuck them on with Mod Podge. Then I freehand embossed some copper for the roof, painted it with black acrylic and sanded it to give it a distressed appearance, and finally added the copper chain and micro beads to finish it off.
