Home Sweet Home

So me & my mum went and did a workshop yesterday at Paddys Stamping Place (, called Home Sweet Home where you spent the ENTIRE day decorating a cute little house

Was great fun, but want to buy more of these houses now to decorate!!!

Here's mine, it's still a work in progress going to add more bits and pieces to each room.

Full house front on - painted with acrylic paints, then stamped images on using archival inks.

Side view, you can see more of the stamping! Fell in love with that butterfly stamp also can see the roof detail, which is paper punched with a edge punch, cut into strips then layered onto roof.

Attic room, image & saying stamped directly on (with a few dots left over from punching the roof strips lol). Little bat guy is someone whose been floating about so added him to my home lol

Love these 2 rooms, the sayings is one quote which I've managed to split in half.
Quote says "Even the wildest dreams have to start somewhere, allow yourself the time and space to let your mind wander and your imagination fly."

Not keen on this room, but it seems to work. Metal embossed with a tim holtz folder then distressed. Cotton reel painted the same as the house, then decorated.

Basement lol - My fave room out of the three is the one with the crow image, love how I've stamped that!

Hi Kate
Love the colours you used and how you chose to put sayings into the rooms. Really nice job:-)

I attended the same workshop on the Friday and had a really great time. Finished mine off the next day. If you want to see my effort it is here:
