Have you ever heard of a Wendy house? If you're British you're probably quite familiar with them. If you have no clue as to what I'm talking about check out this link that explains a Wendy house. Seeing as how I am such a huge Wendy fan and delight in all things Wendy, I thought it only fitting to make a Wendy house.
(for the scrapbook I need to make showing all our home improvements). The 'create' acts as a signpost in the front yard and is attached to a square toothpick. The heart is a brad. Do you like that hammer and its near perfect scale to the piece? I got lucky there. I traced around a cookie cutter onto black shrink plastic, shrank it, then put drywall tape on the handle. On top of the spool is a Dutch Boy paint chip.
Wendy's house stamp is not symmetrical so it was a bit fiddly measuring the walls and roof but it is truly a 3-D chipboard house. The red door I just love! The roof is also chipboard that I smeared with Distress Embossing Ink before mixing up several colors of Distress Embossing Powder that were sprinkled over the wet ink. I drew lines through the powder with a stylus to create shingles then heat embossed it.
Wendy's tree was stamped on acetate with olive and sepia archival inks. I glued it to some blue cloud paper that I had in my remnants drawer. The Glossy Accents caused some of the ink to smear but I think it just enhanced the look I was hoping to achieve. After cutting around the tree I adhered it to the back of the house so it could stand tall and proud. I don't know if the scale of the house and tree were planned but they sure work well together, don't you think?
Don't you think a village would be just over the top with both sizes of houses????
