Tulip Bird House...

I've used a flat wooden house that I got from the Range to make this little birdhouse.
I painted a basecoat of Pebeo iridescent green and turquoise and then stamped the tulips onto tissue paper with a couple of extras to add to the top.
I added tiny bits of the tissue text to fill in any gaps:


The roof is decorated with a chevron stencil and Grunge Paste. I was going to paint over it, but decided to leave it as is:

Finally I die cut some branches and used the bird from CI-357 to perch on top:

Thanks for looking!

This is fab, Helen! I think I have a wooden piece like this lurking on my craft desk so I must have a go!

Oh, Helen,
das ist bezaubernd...
was für eine süße Idee, das Vogelhäuschen mit diesen bildschönen Tulpen zu verzieren.
Eine fantastische Arbeit.
