Tiny Little Glitter House

 This month at Alpha Stamps the kit is 3D House Ornaments.  I was so excited about this because I've been wanting to make some glitter houses.
 When I found out that Leslie had lights to go with this kit (the add on kit) I was over the moon, glitter and lights!  
I built everything on top of a Medium Craft Shadowbox so that I could hide all the light components inside the box. The house is built out of the Christmas Collage Flurry Paper that I then coated with Star Dust Glitter.  Normally I would have used Dresden to outline the windows and roof but I wanted everything on the house to be glitter so I created strips of gold glitter.  The doors and windows come with frames so I just covered those with the glitter and added them to the house.
 Y'all know how much I love my texture.  Well I discovered a new product, Snow-tex and oh my!  It is a lot lighter than modeling paste and I just love how it gives the appearance of snow banks around my house and fence.
 Yes, I know this picture is awful (blurry as all get out) but I just had to show you what it looks like all lit up.
And here is a better lit up picture but I didn't take this one in complete darkness like the above image.
I am going to make myself an entire town of these little cuties.  
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
