Dragons Dream - H and brown

This fortnight at Dragons Dream, it's the choice of May and she has set the letter H, and to use brown...

I've used my JoFY beach hut to represent "home" which as we all know, is where the heart is...

 took a size 10 tag and painted it first with Mud Splat and then French Roast Fresco's, applied a layer  of crackle glaze (wet here, as you can see!)
 Stone as my top coat - fabulous crackles

 took my JoFY beach hut and stamped it on Heavyweight Smoothy Paperartsy paper, coloured it with Frescos and pencils (Mud Splat then Toffee lightly for the wood, and brown pencil for the roof.)

Cut the doors (painted with Beach Hut) and then stamped the heart (Darcy's for Paperartsy) behind where the open doors would be, stuck the door down.
Stamped my other hearts and the text - the alphabet is one of the Inkadinkadoo sets I got at Newbury.

Added some brown check ribbon to finish.

We look forward to seeing your H's at TIO. Don't be shy, don't forget your one real stamp on your tag.

I just love the Crackle on this, it really is effective on anything portraying houses: love the little doors too! Nice 'pop' of blue too. Julie Ann xx

What a brilliant idea. Love that beach hut, the crackle is perfect. And the blue - like Julie Ann says, just pops. Has a kind of olde, feel to it :)
