Here is my take on this challenge.

So excited to share all the fun elements on this Butterfly House with you.

To start this project, I found this wooden house at the local craft store.

The plan is to turn it into a butterfly house.

I am NOT in any way! a mixed media artist so I did the best I could do and enjoyed the process.

I decided on the color scheme based on the butterflies that I chose from the ephemera pack.

 Not knowing what to do, I covered the house with first with backdrop paper.

Huge mistake #1!!

I ended up covering this up with blue tape to paint the roof and base.

This led to some of the paper being damaged when the blue tape was removed.

I ended up covering the damage with Rose Design Tape around the base of the house.

Speaking of the roof, so much fun to do!

  I stared by smearing crackle paste on the roof and letting it dry.

Using a combo of peeled paint and rustic wilderness I panted over the crackle paste.

I LOVE the texture of the roof; I also painted the base of the house with the same color.

I did not like the hole on the front of the house.

That got covered with a die cut circle wrapped with washi tape.

To add on the ephemera elements, I kept it simple.

I pick a few that I liked and layered them up using foam tape on the front of the house.

To make the butterflies “fly” I glued them to Clear craft plastic and glued them to the back of the house.

For a final touch I picked a sentiment from Small Talk Stickers that

 I stuck to a piece of craft plastic for strength and glued to the front of the house.

This completes my take on NOT A CARD
