This weekend I decided to play with my recently aquired Brenda Walton Country Cottage die. It was a considered purchase being a big die, but for no particular reason other than I loved it I splashed out and have had an enjoyable play...isn't that what crafting is all about? My first attempts are a bit wobbly but after the fifth attempt I think I have mastered it and it has used up some bits of lovely paper in my stash!
You can lift the cottage up and put a battery night light in it as there is a hinge piece at the back of the base. It even has shingles and the shutters come as well. If you look on you tube here you can see the delightful little sea side cottage she has made. They look lovely lit up as I had a test run last night but they didn't photograph well so here they are lined up in the conservatory. I'm thinking they will make little gifts for Christmas or perhaps I can do some spooky ones for Halloween, I'll keep you posted!
Can you spot the hideous mistake? I put frosting on the first red roof but didn't seal the distress ink and it has bled through. Thought I would post it warts and all though!
Hope you all had fun this weekend, thanks so much for looking. x
