Flashback Friday 8.00

Flashback Friday is a relatively new blog with unusual challenges and this week, they're asking for our first 3D project.  I don't think the first one I made is still in existence as it was probably in reception class at infants school.....! LOL

However, my first in blogworld was this one!

It's a birdhouse!

It was very easy to make - the 'body' of the box is just an A4 card scored and folded into four equal parts (after leaving a 1.5cm 'lip' for sticking), which is easier to decorate, cut holes in etc. before you stick it together.

The roof, is just another pice of card I fudged around with until it fitted.
The two birds are Inkadinkadoo stamps which I cut out, coloured and mounted, one on the roof and one on the perch.
I roughly sketched and coloured some flowers and used an Adirondack Lettuce inkpad to make some rudimentary grass and colour the roof.
Hope you like it!

I hope I've done it correctly this time...! LOL!

  3. Ei, this is gorgeous. Love the birds, particularly the top one and the roof just makes the whole thing look so alive with the way you have shaded it.
