Inchie Row Houses



...and now for something completely different....




Little houses measuring 1" wide and no higher than 4" made from mountboard and decorated to the theme of 'Who lives in this little house?' for a swap on Paper Digital Art and Images By Kim.

I made two sets of five houses.  The first set were mainly inked, rubber stamped, painted and collaged whereas the second set were much more textural - I used wax, tissue paper with Brusho, metal embossing and textural paint.



I prefer the first set but hope the recipients will like them anyway.  The last day for getting them mailed to Kim is not until 30 January 2010 so I am well ahead of the game.

Sherry, the row houses are great. If you made them about 2" high they would make a great brooch the 4 of them together. Love these!

Is there a template or did you wing it?

Sherry said...

Thanks Genie and Cindy!

Cindy that's a great idea! No there isn't a template - we could make any house shape so yes, I did just wing it. I like the ones with little chimney stacks on but they are a bit fiddly to cut out.
