Cozy Home

I had such a great time making this piece for the Gingersnap GC29, Cozy Home contest....I just couldn't stop! I covered the house chipboard with some ol' paper, used the Simple Whitewash tech from the TJNL, stamped and distressed it. Added the chimney out of metal from Ten Seconds Studios, and covered the roof with kraft paper run thru the Bug. All the stamps are Tim's, my first clear set of his stamps, and I'm not very fond of them. The images are really hard to stamps with! I tried many inks, and finally settled for India ink. Then I added the rest of the "stuff" to make me happy! Hope ya' like it! hugz...
