3 D Garden Shed with Little Critters

3 D Garden Shed
Hi friends sharing a 3 dimensional Garden Shed with Little Critters for my 4th post as Designer Spotlight for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge  where the theme is "Little Critters"

And I made a 3 dimensional garden shed using chipboard and added cute little hedgehogs, butterflies and dragonflies as critters!

I love to use Sizzix Big Z dies and to create the 3 D window for my garden shed I die cut 3 pieces of chipboard using  the Tim Holtz Window and Pediments dies, layered them atop , applied gesso and gave a nice coating of Prima Texture crackle paste .

Added Graphic 45 Time to Flourish papers behind and around the window to create  a sunny cheerful scene!

I fussy cut some gorgeous flowers from the Graphic 45 papers and also made matching handmade sunflowers [using the Cheery Lynn  sunflower die] .

Since the theme was "Little Critters" I added butterflies, hummingbirds and dragonflies to my garden!

Here is how I made my 3 D Garden shed which is open on the side to house a mini album/ diary/etc[not yet decided what I  should put inside it!!]
3 D Shed Construction
I embossed cream card stock using the Spellbinders Brick folder and added my 3 D chipboard window to the front piece. Used double layers of chipboard to create the roof , base and sidewalls.

When constructing such a 3 D structure it is easier to stick the roof and base first and later add the side wall.

I used card stock and liquid glue to stick the pieces together.

The base and roof of my Garden shed are lined with beautiful papers from Graphic 45 Time to Flourish.
I added a hovering hummingbird on the roof...made it literally hover using acetate!!

I used rusty hinge and wild honey Distress Inks  to create the gorgeous shading for my sunflower and added chunky glitter on the center!

I also made the golden dragonfly fly in midair by suspending it using a thin strip of acetate!
The garden floor has moss and mushrooms!

The picture below shows the open side to slip in your mini album or secret diary!

I used a Graphic 45 chipboard"time to flourish" on the base of my window...such an apt sentiment for this project wont you agree!
