Challenge for SVG Attic and Guest Designer

Today I have used one of the newest files from the SVG Attic line titled SDS Home Tweet Home. The bird houses in this set are adorable and come in three different sizes. I made the tallest and the smallest ones for this month's SVG Attic Challenge

We would love to have you join the challenge and you can do so by clicking on the SVG Attic May Challenge. This month's challenge is anything goes and prizes include a $25, $15 and $10 gift certificates to SVG Attic. Requirements are simple: use a file from SVG Attic and link up before May 31st.

I used double sided paper for both these bird houses and I went with a rustic look for these. On this first birdhouse I used Tim Holtz distress ink on the front and side panels and I used a dark blue chalk ink for the edges. The texture on the birdhouse is actually the paper design itself.

I used double sided paper on this birdhouse too but I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder for the roof sections and the sides. After I dry embossed the sides, I gently rubbing soft brown chalk ink over the raised embossed make them more visible. 

The cute little bird is from the Birds and Bees Collection.

I just love the way these turned out and they were very easy and quick to put together and they are so cute sitting on my shelf now. 

Enjoy and good luck with the challenge.
