 Happy Sunday everyone. I am stopping by to bring you a little quick and easy project using my favourite 3d House style 1.

These 3d houses are great little projects to complete and can be decorated in all manner of ways and are perfect to give as a handmade gift.

I started by assembling and gluing together the house pieces and then gave it a coat of DecoArt chalky finish in Carbon all over. Once dry I gave it a coat of DecoArt Ultra Matte varnish to seal and protect.

Next I cut a panel from white 300gsm cardstock to fit the front of the house leaving a small border.

I then glued a piece of Tim holtz collage tissue ( you could also use rice paper) to one side of the panel and dried with a heat tool.

I then spritzed the cardstock panel with water and embossed with a Tim Holtz 3d Brick embossing folder through the big shot. The panel was then glued to the house front.

Next I took a piece of the Tando Moroccan grid , applied versamark ink and sprinkled with white embossing powder and heat set. I then fussy cut a Butterfly ( you know I love Butterflies right) from my stash and inked the edges with black Archival Ink.

The Moroccan grid was then glued to the house offset to the left and the Butterfly then glued into place at a jaunty angle.

To finish the word Papillon was created using a Dynamo and mounted onto a piece of white cardstock and trimmed to create a border. This was then attached to the house as shown.

A quick and easy monochrome project with splash of colour using minimal supplies.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read.

Hugs Fiona.
