House Shaped ATC

On DCI group there is an ATC swap using House Shaped ATCs. I cut out house shapes on card stock and adhered some of the paper that had absorbed the excess ink from the baby wipe technique. Stamped on an image using black VersaFine ink and added black Distress Ink to the edges of the ATC.
Made a film strip embellishment by painting a blue acrylic wash over a dictionary page of names. Coated the back of Tim Holtz's "film strip ribbon" with liquid glass and adhered to the painted paper.
Used the film strip embellishment for the chimney. Added a metal decorative corner bit to the roof. Used a heart brad to attach a blue paper flower to the stamped image and added a couple of square blue brads.
A fun swap, looking forward to receiving what the others have created and excited to see what shaped is next.
