Tall Votive House Christmas Shrine

Just can't get enough of that Glitter!
 
Ah! Well here's another little treat from Retro Cafe Art Gallery. This time it's the Tall Votive House Shrine......
 

....with some Snowflakes, Christmas Tree Cut-Outs with Stickles, and Christmas Word Scrolls.
 
I used Christmas Red, Turquoise, Gold, and Green Stickles.
 

It starts out like this...I painted the pieces for the outside first. The Roof is Stenciled with a Texture Paste and the Large Diamond Background, painted with Ice Blue Fresco Paint, and sanded down.
 
The other pieces are painted and stamped with Archival Inks - Jet Black, Olive, and Red Geranium. The Stitches stamp is a Stamp Block.
 

 
The insides are done the same with Fresco Paints and the Mini Holiday Stamp Collection.
 
 
I added some Platinum Ice Stickles here on the roof.

 
Glue it together...this is the inside with colors that make it glow....


....and ADORN with a Mini Sisal Wreath, White Snowflake Paper Cuts, Pine Tree Cut Outs, and Star Mix Cut Outs !

You can hang it on the tree, or as shown here, set it on your table with an electric tea light.

Check out all the  goodies links  here, and make some for yourself and your friends!
 
JOY!
 
Linda
