Tim time birdhouse

Hello there! Its another birdhouse today but this time inspired by all things Tim for the Vintage Journey challenge. I've got a sale coming up in in just over a week and I'm trying to get lots of non-card items ready to see if they sell any better. Its got to be worth a try and oh so much fun to do! When thinking about this challenge I knew I wanted to use the umbrella man - just because for me he is so iconic!


I started by painting the house with gesso then with a light grey acrylic paint. Next I used Tims sunray mask to add rays of weathered wood distress ink to the sides of the house. 


Next came the background stamping with the stamps from the Chemist set - the formulae ones - then I used Tims stencil and embossing paste to get the black dots. I added some rub -ons - numbers and quotes then the adage tickets. I die cut the umbrella man and added him then finally painted the roof black and added the word band on the back.


I hope you like it - I did have fun making something all Tim other than a tag and would like to enter this into the vintagejourney-anything-tim.challenge. Not sure if its very vintage but its definitely all Tim!!!

Hope you have a good day today and thanks for dropping by!

Big Hugs
