Earthy Birdhouse


Hello Hello ...!
I am LOVING the November Color Challenge for Lindys!!


Such beautiful and earthy colors and ideal for creating this little chipboard Birdhouse from Imaginarium Designs! I used the November sets to create this little number!

I coated the chipboard with gesso first so that the sprays didn't sink into the chipboard and then used a Stencil Girl stencil to add some texture.

I used two colors for the birdhouse ....Bucket o'Blood Red- Moon Shadow Mist & Canna Lily Burnt Orange


The chipboard leaves were colored with Greased Lightnin' Green and the chipboard branches were double embossed with Oakleaf Olive (double dipping is where you head set the powder then while it is still hot, dip it back into the powder to create a super thick glossy coat)


The metal leaves were coated in Prima Clear Gesso and then I sprayed them with Golden Sleigh Bells ... it just gives them the sweetest glimmery sheen

When I put the feet on the birdhouse, I couldn't find any brass brads ... only yellow ... so here is a quick tutorial on how I colored them ... so easy!  So I then added some Gilded Burgundy Brass  embossing powder to the feet to match!


So I hope that you like it!
It was really fun and simple to make!

Have a great day!
