Winter wonderland: By Zuzu

Yes, I have set free my christmas stamps. Its good to get ahead with Yuletide crafting I think. it keeps it fun and eliminates stress. this snowy winter wonderland house shaped configuration will be a pre Yuletide gift for a friend.(and fits nicely in to this months challenge theme!)



I used one of the wooden houses in the "altered art" section of the shop. I painted it inside and out with a combination of duck egg blue and cream. then i stamped some christmas images (list at the foot of the page) on to tissue paper i had pre-stained (and dried) with antique linen distress stains. i cut them out and glued them to the back of some of the compartments of the wee house. I then painted the "floors" of the compartments with white paint and added some snow-tex (fake snow texture). after that it was a case of filling in the wee compartments. making snowballs out of beads and using a lot of Tim Holz and other sizzix dies.



Supplies list:

Wooden house
Victorian Christmas #2  (2 stamps from sheet)
Victorian christmas #1   (2 stamps from sheet)
Crystal stickles

Ideaology Ice-skates, corked domes and Christmas word bands.
Ideaology Woodland, corked vials and Fractured dolls

Love the little snowflake in a bottle idea, so very cute. Now i like a good snowflake but you have really made me feel all seasonal.

Superb project with loads of interest and little touches that make me want to reach inside the screen and feel the textures and shapes:-)
