Shabby Shack!

This going back to work lark has really messed up my crafting schedule lol
There just aren't enough hours in the day, and that is obviously showing with my lack of blogging!
Sorrweeee folks.
But today I am managing to share the piece I made for Hels Sunday Stamper challenge which has a Houses/Home theme
I made this piece by putting a mini embellishment tray into a frame, then I cut some mount board with the 'on the edge' scalloped die and arranged like a roof.
 I painted the whole thing with fresco paints and crackled with the fresco crackle.
I lined the sections with a pretty paper. Then it was just a case of embellishing which I did with mini bottles, charms, and bottle top and a hand made mini book.
And there it is, 1 shabby little shack/ house!
***
After I finished the piece I realized I had not put one bit of stamping on it!!! durr what a muppet I am,
I hope Hels can forgive me that little indiscretion!

Thanks for stopping by x

I duuno Nicky, this work lark really is boring isn't it and like you say, does get in the way of a busy crafting schedule!!!!

Anyway, back to the house. Love how you've created the roof with the layers, great idea (might have to pinch that one!!)
