Twinkle toes house

Good morning! 

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Creative Moments challenge blog.  

The theme is travel.  One of our sponsors is "Creative bugs".. I chose this cute adoreable little witch called "Twinkle toes".  They travel on a broom right? Lol. 
The theme is optional so you can use anything goes if you wish 

I bought a little bird house for 50p and decided to upcycle it.  I created a house for the little witch . 

I used starlight paints to cover the house and texture paste with imagination craft stencils for dimension and texture.  I also use tattered lace die cuts and little beads as pebbles which I painted with sand coloured starlight paints and silver gilding polish. 

I made the broom and bats myself .  I coloured the digi stamp with spectrum noir pens and placed her on the broom and perched her on top of the house.  I added gold and silver gilding polish over the house as a finishing touch. 

You can add lights inside the house.  Very effective in the light as the paints shimmer and sparkle

So clever! What a wonderful idea. I bet my granddaughter would love upcycling a bird house for Halloween. This turned out fantastic. I love all the little witchy details and I'm sure that witch will love her new home! :)

Thanks for joining us for our Cut it Up for our Halloween challenge!
