Shabby Chic Bird House

I hope you had a great weekend. I went to Dayton, OH yesterday for two great classes. It was nice so nice to see some sweet people again. I will post more about the classes when I finish up the cards. Big Thanks to hubby for driving and entertaining himself with a movie and shopping while I was busy stamping.

Here is a project I made for the Hero Arts Blog Home and Mother's Day Challenge. I found this unfinished birdhouse for 75% off at Archiver's a couple weekends ago. I think it cost less than $3!

Lots of stamps and supplies on this project. I think I listed them all below. Here are some close-ups:


Stamp(s): Hero Arts (CL408, CL402, CG139, CG119, K5313, LP169)
Ink(s): Hero Arts (Grass, Soft Leaf); Ranger (Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Victorian Velvet, Brushed Corduroy); ColorBox (Chestnut Roan); Memories (White)
Paint(s): Ranger (Snow Cap [Dabber], Picket Fence, Broken China, Tattered Rose [Crackle Paints])
Paper(s): Neenah (Classic Crest Solar White); The Paper Company (Kraft)
Other: KaiserCraft (Birdhouse); Hero Arts (CH137 Pearls); Copic (Assorted Markers); Prima (Flowers)

Thanks for looking! Comments are appreciated!


P.S. Anyone have tips or tricks for formatting in Blogger? It always seems to want to add too many and/or not enough line breaks (drives me nuts)! Thanks!

I'm glad you had fun at your class and I was happy to drive. Clash of the Titans certainly wasn't a "wife" movie anyhow. Cute birdhouse!

This is so lovely the way you put all your elements together, the flourish background, and all the distressing, love the 2 birds so perfectly placed and the sentiments are thoughtful! And, yes, I agree with Dawn, what a great hubbie to comment like that!
