A little birdhouse for someone...

Good Afternoon peeps, yes its a mini birdhouse... 

Made from paper mache (I think). The little tulips were stamped on using Distress Ink. The tulip stamp is a small clear stamp by Dreamees and the bird house was brought from That Craft Place online shop

After painting with gesso topped with acrylic paints, I used 4 different colours of acrylic paints for the stamped images & the detailing on the top of the birdhouse.
The ribbon band & chocolate box bow says Spring Time on it and gives a cheery brightness to the round house. I used a small mask full of different scrolls for the pattern on the top. This ribbon is from my own
stash as is the springy ladybug in some of the photos.
