A little paper church ...

 Hi all
I have had these dies from Tim Holtz for ages and I have finally had a play with them .They are by Tim Holtz its his dwelling die and church tower die. I Kraft card which I gesso'd and inked with old paper distress ink for the main body of the church but used TH distress card for the roof and door which I used sandpaper on .The trees started life white and I inked them with forest moss distress ink and added rock candy distress stickles and glitter to sparkle them up. The fence was die cut and distressed the same as the church. I made a stand for it using an old canvas which I covered in paper... This was such fun to make and the possibilities for you to change the design using different papers and mediums are endless.... They are slightly addictive too lol so be prepared for a whole village coming soon
