Raggy doll house number 7

Last of the raggy doll Christmas houses to share today, with the coordinating card too of course.  In fact I will start with the card. No in progress photos at all as I just got stuck in and made it! 

I added paint to the panel of cardstock in colours that went with the house and then stamped some Darcy stamps around the background. I also added some stencilling.  I then got the fabulous reindeer stamp she designed and stamped that in Copper paint.  I did the same with the sentiment lightly in the background.  I then took some coloured Cardstock and stamped the sentiment again in the copper so it could stand out.  I distressed the edge of the sentiment strip and added the to the card  front.

Then I layered up the painted panel with some sequin waste and the cardstock and got the sewing machine out to sew them together at jaunty angles. again I distressed the edge of the coloured Cardstock.  I then found the cute little reindeer in my stash so added the copper paint to that before adding it to the card.

I finished with more copper paint to each of the distressed edges and the edge of the card blank.

The house started life just like the others but then I white washed it with a coat of gesso so it got lighter. I then added some of the pale blue paint again and then sorted out the snowy roof using a mix of glass beads gel ano some flower soft snow I found in the stash when having a clear out. 

And then I completely forgot to take a picture of the finished house so you will have to just imagine it! Lol! I really am such a muppet! 

Ah well … this is it for my raggy doll house posts…. have some stuff planned for January but not much between now and then…. but will pop by tomorrow for a journal page I’ve done so see you all later! 

Happy crafting!
