Something very different for Cute Daisy May

It's time (well almost time since it's the early hours of the morning here, as I won't have time to post it as normal in the morning) for another Cute Daisy May challenge
This week the theme is animals. You can make whatever you want as long as it has an animal on it, and of course you don't have to use a Cute Daisy May download (although we do love to see what you make with them), you can use whatever you like.
I have tried something REALLY different this week and have used one of Linnies Helping Hands Templates. Now this is my very first time using a template like this so please be gentle with me lol. I have quite a few pics to show you the whole thing so just keep on scrolling lol.

I used the Farmhouse template and this is the house with the doors closed. I had to tip the house a bit so I could fit it all in the photo (ok except a little bit at the top that I cut off lol), so my doors have opened a bit, but when it is standing straight, they close nicely.

This is the inside of the house and barn with the doors open. I used 2 Cute Daisy May downloads and a stamp called Loves "horses" which can be purchased at Aries Crafts. (see link in my sidebar)
A close up of the rooms and the Daisy May images (sorry it's a bit blurry) which I coloured with Copics. The papers I used as "wallpaper" are K&Co.

A closer look at inside the barn. The horses were embossed with clear detail embossing powder then I coloured with my Copics. I have never coloured a stamp that is as detailed as this or any that are "real looking", so this was a big challenge for me but I did enjoy it :) I added some hay as the horse stamp is 2 horses heads so I had to use something under them so they didn't look as if they were floating. I got the picture of the hay off the internet. (copywrite free of course).
And finally if you are still with me lol, a view from the top so you can see the roof and how the doors open.
Oh all the papers I used for the building, brick, wood and tile affect are all ones I got a while ago from a dolls house website. My Daughter Rhianna has a dolls house and I was looking for nice wallpaper and bits for it and came accross these too. I knew they would come in handy one day :) I also used some brads for handles on the doors.

Phew, that was one long post for one DT project lol and I still have my Squigglefly card to post today, but I will do that later.
Thanks for looking and I hope you will pop on over to the Cute Daisy May blog to see the other girls cards and join in with the challenge too:)
