My little Art House

 Hello folks!  The Art Houses stamp set has been released over in Sam Poole's Creative Studio and I'm excited to share with you this little house that I created. 
This did start out life as a four sided building (I stamped the image in a row 4 times, leaving tabs along the end pieces, to add the glue, I scored along all the folds before inking with antique linen and tattered rose distress inks)  but the  little box wouldn't fold up correctly because of the angle of the roof.  So I chopped one of the sides off and it worked a treat. From the discarded piece I cut out the crown, shaped it and adhered it to the front panel with dimensional glue gel.  I also added glossy accents to the crown and key plate.
(Excuse the hands but I thought it would be fun to show you how small the piece is)  I adhered some roses and wire swirls with hot melt glue and the little piece was finished.  Not sure if I needed to add some glamour dust to the roses or not.  What do you think? 
Sam is going to be back on Create and Craft on 23rd March.  Don't miss the show as she always brings us such inspirational demos and samples.
Ciao for now!

This is soooooo cute and gorgeous, I love it! I think glamour dust would look cool, but then I adore sparkle! xx

Wow Sandra this is so unusual. Very cute. I agree with Craftychris - I think the glamour dust would be good, but like her I too like sparle! x
