Dutch Doobadoo April blog hop

Hi guys, the girls at Dutch Doobadoo are doing another blog hop  15th - 18th April
this time showing the shape art stencil

Here is what I have created with it,
I have cut round the stencil with a piece of card then added a piece of designer paper on the top and cut round the card stock, this way you get the exact cut out shape, I distressed my edges with a distress tool and inked with vintage photo, just because this is something I like to do,
I added a hint of a perfect pearls mist too on the paper for a little added detail,
the gorgeous DD  card board bird houses  472.309.005 I covered with some paper and cut round the shapes with a knife, the one on the ground I added a lolly stick which I trimmed down to size, covered with gesso and added a script stamp too,

The bird is from the same set and this time I have painted it with chalk effect acrylic paint and added a pearl dot for it's eye,
In the left hand side corner I added some of my favourite  honeycomb soft board and then layered a few flowers and cheesecloth,


To finish off the project I added a brick effect using home made 3d paste coloured when dry with chalks and I added a butterfly made a  Martha Stewart mould and delight air dry clay from Crafts and Me,
The beautiful tree branch die my lovely sister lent me and I have cut it out using grunge board and coloured it using chalk again and added some cut out flowers from the same die, a little cheesecloth finishes it off too,
You should have come from Monique, if so your on the right track if not go back to Dutch Doobadoo for the list, when you have done all the hop and left your comments go back to DD and leave a comment on there to let us know you've finished,
hope we've given you some inspiration on using DD products,

Happy Crafting!

Door de mal maar een keer te gebruiken, benadruk je de vorm veel meer! Dat ga ik zeker ook eens proberen! Een mooie "strakke"kaart is het geworden! Liefs, Mieke
