Something Completely Different - wk 13

The challenge for August over on ~{SCD}~ is to make houses, with this weeks theme being love and romance. After receiving the inchie cube, I thought I'd make a little 3D house with the aim of doing the other weeks the same. There is a reason for this. I thought if I made some houses, the pixies might want to live there and hopefully they'd be happy and not keep moving my stash or making the craft room so untidy!! You should see what they did to it while I was at Lynne's!

I had a bit of a go at making a template from card and coloured it with distress inks (loving the hot colour combies at the mo). I cut a door, but there was a bit of a design fault (what a surprise) as the flap that holds the bottom in place shows if the door is open, so it's been closed again!

I cut the heart by hand to get the size right and stamped that and the circle with a Paperartsy stamp.

The hearts and swirls at the base are from some Basic Grey stamps, as is the big text heart that is on the reverse.

The roof is made from a heart punch used on some MME papers.

If you're thinking' 'that house looks a bit twisted', please refer back to the title of my blog!!

This is such a pretty little house, hope your pixies like it so they leave your stuff alone! :-) Love the colours and the hearts as the house top.
Thanks for the comment on mine. Anesha

Fab little house, love the heart roof tiles and if you hadn't said there was a design fault we'd never have known. We could just settle on estate agent speak and call it "characterful", I guess!
