I'm A Big Bird....

...No not really it's just that I live in a teeny tiny birdhouse lol.
It's the fabulous Linda's final week at PaperArtsy, and her first make was to alter a birdhouse. Well I knew I had one, but I guess it's not as big as Linda's - hey they say size doesn't matter...
My birdhouse is wooden so one coat of Haystack was fine. I'm still useless at crackling so mine's a combo of crackling and dry brushing. My stencilling is Ferro that's been heated, then gone over with Treasure Gold
My roof is copper sheet that I've punched into leaves. It was a bit that I've practised on with TSS moulds so there's a few different designs going on. It really glows in the wait for it.... SUNSHINE!
Here's the Dove from Above which has been stamped onto Metal on Card.
I used stamps from the Clocks 1 plate and HP 1104.
Right I'm just off to run the London Marathon ... no I'm in the Grand Prix this morning... or am I cleaning the kitchen after someone's 02.30 'snack' then doing the ironing... Mmm decisions decisions.
Enjoy your Sunday and thanks very much for looking x
