Jewelled House


I made this little house for the challenge at Dans ma maison il y a .

I bought these little Indian gem embellishments over a year ago at the NEC Hobbycraft Fair and they inspired me to make the house look as it does.

The stamps used come from a set by Elusive Images 'Filigree Fusion' and the smaller one seemed the ideal shape for a rather exotic roof for my house. It was stamped in Versafine 'Vintage Sepia' and 'Satin Red' was used for the body of the house with the paisley backing stamp from the same set. 

Some German Scrap borders, an edging with gold PenTouch, highlights using a gold Sakura Metallic gel pen, some fancy ribbon from my stash and the two jewels finish it off.

  7. What a great little house, but it looks like a candle to me, with the roof being the flame. I love it, it is so unusual.
