PaperArtsy Challenge Lucy's Wooden House

Hello friends and welcome.
Over on the PA blog Lucy has been back this week and I was inspired by her pretty wooden house project which you can see here.
I've not had a lot of time this week but I was in time for the deadline.
I was really inspired by her grunge paste on the tissue paper.
Then I followed and I played along with her project.
I used  hanging chunky board large instead of wooden house and I made crackle over the board.

I mixed Lake Wanaka, Space Cadet Fresco and Grunge Paste then used Lin's stencil ELB003 on the tissue paper.

I used LB stencil ELB003  with Space Cadet Fresco only stems part onto the board.
I was glued petals and buds to the top of the stems by Stain Glaze.
I then used Treasure Gold to the petals and buds.
And I added some embellishments.
This is the finished. Sorry for insufficient explanation this time.

Thank you for stopping by and see you soon xx


  1. oh this is just exquisite, Etsuko! Love the blue and brown together and all the little details like the button tied to the lace, and the framing of the word. This is perfect! Thank you so much for finding the time to play along,
