Another of my Christmas houses to share today. Of course there is also the coordinating card.
This is the point I got to with the house when I first took pictures… yes nearly but not quite finished. I went for a slightly brighter colour finish for this one including some neon pink paint flicks! I also went for an iridescent medium roof and some clear sequins to decorate. I added word stamping to the house which also tied it in with the card.
The card started life as a piece I had wiped texture paste onto so already pretty cool. I added the paint in patches and also added chalk fresco finish paint to give it some “white” space. Then I started stamping.
I used the big Papermania stamp to add the subtle words and then the word joy from a Paperartsy set. The Christmas lights across the top are from the same set.
Next I added iridescent medium through a stencil and let it dry. I also added the Tim Holtz die cut trees.
Now time to finish off…
Glitter, sequins and a sentiment, inking and mounting and distressing all going on to finish off the card.
Now back to the house.
I made the windows and doors look more integral to the house by adding some shading using the Pitt pens from Faber-Castell. I also added a little more of the iridescent medium rubbed in with my finger to give the house more of a sheen.
One more to share tomorrow… please pop back to see how the final one looks.
