More from the Tando Week at the Craft Barn

More beautiful creations today from The Craft Barn Tando week...thanks to Jane, as I'm lifting her post again. 

Today we have Neil and Michelle

First is Neil, he has been busy with the trio of houses!!!

Neil says......

"I coloured the houses with Distress stains.  I stamped   
  the sentiments and images onto the houses and assembled them.
The roofs from left to right are ferro gold , embossed and inked
 gold card (Tim Holtz Regal flourish folder) and hand stamped paper.

I attached them to an old domino box, distressed and stamped with images
 from the Going Somewhere stamp set and used scrabble tiles to spell
 out the address before adding some random scribbles and
 words with a marker!
I then added the triple embossed Tando butterfly."

And now for a tag.....

"Holding the mask in place stamp the random numbers over the tag
 with Distress inks.

Keeping the mask in place ink over the whole tag with Distress Ink.
  Spritz with water and dry (remember to remove mask if using heat gun!)
 Don't worry about any seepage!

Remove mask and ink over whole tag with Distress ink and
 then spray with a mister mix of the same colour and  Perfect Pearls.


Trace around and cut out some flower shapes from co-ordinating paper.
Add to tag as shown, add some gems to the centre and attach the bird
 and branches as shown.
The bird is inked and stamped before covering with 3d glaze."
