Celebrate

was this weeks theme over on the Tando Creative blog and its my turn to bring the week to a close... and I've made this easy card:-


I have taken a mask and inked with stormy blue distress ink..... "Merry Christmas" was stamped in the middle and two Tando Trees were painted with paperartsy fresco paint, outlined and glossy accents added......

also,

a few weeks ago Janet and I attended a class over at Birds in the Barn with Jo Firth-Young where we created decorated bird houses... here is my completed house...


Birds in the Barn are also running a competition to decorate a bird house, so whilst there we dropped off our entries...

here is my birdhouse:-

my birdhouse has been painted with paperartsy fresco paints and brick work added along with entrance tiles! (a rubber stamp by paperartsy) the owl is from Tando and painted with said paints.... corrugated paper was rolled for the logs ready for those cold nights and a little brass lamp waiting outside....


The roof is "wooden effect" paper and along the top is a stampotique stamp by my tando teamie Roc Nicholas, with mini fasteners added for "nails"..... each side was decorated.....


Tando mushroom and bunnies painted with the fresco paints...

and at the back of the house is a very special, one and only....


"birdsy original" rofl....
