Heartfelt Creations Project

Good morning everyone and welcome to another great Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations.  Today I have a fun project with lots of flowers made with, yes, you guessed Heartfelt Creations stamps and coordinating dies.  I started with a little wooden birdhouse from Michaels, painted the whole thing with dark brown acrylic paint, I then put a coat of crackle medium and a final coat of white acrylic paint on the main body of the house.
I glued a wire covered with floral tape in place so I had something to adhere all my leaves and flowers too.
Added some adhesive pearl swirls for extra embellishment.
Here is a closeup of the flowers, added Stickles to the edges of all the petals for sparkle.
I also adhered some bleached babys breath.
Here is a closeup of the front, I love this sentiment, I think it's just perfect for this little project.
I took a bit of work to get the wire to wrap around and over the roof and stay there, but I got it the way I wanted it.
For the tiles of the roof I used the border die from the "Decorative Butterfly-Border" die set, after I cut all the pieces I embossed them with a texture plate from Fiskars for extra texture.
Well, thank you so much for stoping by today, I hope you enjoyed my project, make sure to visit the HFC Blog for tons of gorgeous projects.  Have a great day.
