Hello! All week the Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been hopping along with the Stampendous Design Team to bring you an eyeful of crafty goodness using the Cottage Home and Mushroom Home Stamps and Dies Sets and Eileen's versatile dies. You will definitely want to head on over to Eileen's blog and the Stampendous blog to catch up on the projects shared so far. Comment along the way for a chance to win one of the prize packs!
I made a little fairy house using Eileen's re-released Candy Drawer die and the Cottage Home stamp and die set. My house has a little surprise in it! ;-)
Lift out the drawer by the chimney…
A little flower fairy and her garden are inside!
I started out by cutting out the Candy Drawer from matboard and using Fresco Finish Chalk paints to cover the inside and outside of the house. Paper Artsy has a great tutorial on how to get great visual texture using a brayer to apply the paint.
|You can see here I already folded up the drawer. Don't forget to prepare a|
piece of cardstock to cut for the bottom of the drawer to cover the glue tabs.
For the roof, I used bristol paper (like very heavy cardstock) and the roof die that comes with the Cottage Home set. To get a full roof, I folded the bristol paper in half and placed the top of the die just off the edge of the fold. That makes it so the die won't cut through the paper and the fold stays intact. More Fresco Paint and Crackle Glaze finished it off.
|I base coated the roof with Green Peas and applied the Crackle Glaze over it.|
A top coat of Slate was applied and the crackle swiftly made an appearance!
I printed and fussy cut the fairy out as well as added some butterfly wings (also from The Graphics Fairy website).
