Double Challenge


I like to combine challenges when I can, to see if I can stretch myself a little more. Created by Hand had this great house template this week, and Step Outside Your Box dared you to create something without any adhesives. My original intention was to collage the house, but without adhesive, that went out the window. So, to get the depth/layers I was after, I started with stamps. I then added paint and oil pastels, stamped into the wet paint, and added distress embossing power. More paint and finally the embellishments. Everything is held together with eyelets, brads and wire. I'm really not sure if it's finished yet, but I do like where it is going. Does it look complete to you, or does it need to be pushed further?

  5. I love this Casey! thanks so much for taking the challenge! I'm asking everyone if they would mind if I used their house on my website (crediting each person). Please let me know if it's okay to use yours. Thanks! Suzanne suzanne@quietfiredesign.com
