Rubber Stamp Club Homework

Our homework assignment was a birdhouse template. It was pretty small and the owner said the instructions were to rubber stamp it. We could change the size (larger or smaller) and do whatever we want with it as long as it was rubber stamped. I knew the night she assigned it (Feb meeting) that I wanted to make it 3D and use foam board.
I first stamped and colored the enter piece of foam board. Then I enlarged the birdhouse on my computer. Transferred it to my foam board and cut it out with my artist knife.
A friend/neighbor came over and liked it alot. But, I explained that the birdhouse seemed boring by itself. So, we came up with ideas to spruce it up. Thus, the entire scenery around it.
I even stold my birds bird seed and glued it in a medicine cap. I think it is hilarious that the scale is entirely off. The birds are smaller than their eggs, the cat (button) is smaller than the birds and he flower pots are huge in comparison.
This project was really fun.
