More little houses

Hi there friends, not cards today but little houses! I am sharing some more made by my talented hubbie. Very photo heavy so apologies in advance. I also took a few of one of the houses in progress so you can see what happens.

Anyway here they are below for your perusal. He has quite a few made now and has also made a little ladder type shelf to keep them all on. So I can show you them all together here. He has given one away to our grandson too so that one is missing,.... he spotted it and asked for it lol.

He seemed surprised I was going to show them all to you lol. I said only other crafters will know how much work you put into making them ;) ....and no he doesn't sell them before you ask, he just likes making things. Yes we will end up with a whole village soon lol! I suggested he copy people's cottages/houses and try and sell them!

Back next with our two dolls houses  we both fixed/altered and peg dolls I decorated also. Enjoy your day/week whatever you have planned ;)

This one isn't made out of wood, despite the appearance. It was created
from a tree stump, he made a silicone mould from some bark and then
created it using home made paper clay.

This one was built on a real wooden stump. Excuse my bright
 coloured seahorse in the background lol (between the steps).
Oops the sea horse sneaked in again... sorry!!
A couple still in progress. The decoupage either side is mine btw.
 All of them together, minus one our grandson has now. Excuse the mess ;)
The church (far left) is still my favourite I think, although the windows I printed are fading a bit now. 
His latest model house, in progress. The mini roof tiles are made from egg boxes ;)
Almost finished now, chimney added and all painted. He is going to add
a garden to this one soon.
Another view.
He carved the windows and said they were very fiddly!!

Flower challenge, Monochrome

White Linen card
TH Watercolour card
AltEnew Charmed stamp
AltENew beautiful quotes stamp sentiment

 I made an A6 tent fold card base and added a panel of watercolour card on top. Then I stamped my flower spray in navy and coloured it using my distress ink. I added a quick watery wash of the same colour around my flowers. I stamped my sentiment and used a similar colour wash over that too. A quick edging with my Promarker and I stuck that to my card also. A sprinkling of sequins and job done !

Olive & Tangerine card

Hi there friends, ....phew it ain't half hot here......still 27c late at night. Oh well must make the best of it while it lasts I guess ;)

I have another card to share made for the 'Less is More' challenge once again. This time it's a colour one and 'Olive and Tangerine',.....not a colour combo I have ever tried I think !

I had simply no idea what to make so I just looked through my stamps and dies for inspiration. It's what I always do....sometimes it works...sometimes it doesn't lol. ;)

Anyway it wasn't long before I came across this poppies die  and poppies yeeeah. I cut the bottom half with white card then coloured it with an olive  marker. I used some olive type ink and a stencil to add interest behind my image and job done!

I also used these amazing clear crystal gems I recently bought, they are like little pyramids and sooo sparkly....I just love them !!...I added a little orange pearl too for colour ;)

I have been busy lately decorating little peg dolls for our two...yes TWO dolls houses my OH bought very cheaply from our local tip who now have a shop. We had to paint one and do a lot inside one of them but the other was just perfect. Anyway will post pics soon of it all....and my OH has been making more little minature houses too he he ! to follow soon ;)

Sorry for the rambling post...come and see my card ;)
