ATCs and Tip Ins

I had put my name down for a few swaps lately.. and got stuck into them this weekend...

First cab off the rank was this tip in page for Art Queens... its going to Kasha.... little houses are Dylusions stamps... background stamps by Kaisercraft... texture to right is texture paste trowelled on through a grip mat with a lacy pattern.. smoke coming out of chimneys is the skin that had formed around the lid an side of my gloss varnish tub... I peeled it off and was about to throw it in the bin when inspriration struck... glued it to the page and coloured with paint....


On PaperTraders I am running a Good Witch/Bad Witch swap... players have to send three of each and will receive the same back... these are mine for the swap



And while Lucy and I were away last weekend we made these little houses... cut from MDF by Lucy's long suffering hubby (to our requests, not lucy.. then again....vbg).  This is the bigger house.. front view....inside is 6.5 inches x 4.5 inches... the idea is it will hold postcard sized technique cards.. for the moment it just has tools in it.  Images are from Finecrafted Design at Deviant Scrap.. wheels/feet from Ideology.


.  This is the back view of the big house


 This is the small house...it measures 4" x 3" on the inside and will hold completed  ATCs ready to post.

Houses were lined with a single layer paper napkin and varnished for durability, then put together and painted and embellished.  The feet on this one is little cotton reels stacked two high.

As always... comments and feedback most welcome :)
