At long last, I've completed my wee Witch's Cottage and can now share it. The project began with Alpha Stamps Magic Potions kit which is a mini 2.5" x 2" tin, lots of tiny bottles, resin skulls, some DIY bottles and stoppers, collage sheets, an eye charm, and a crystal ball! I turned the kit into a potions shelf for a witch:



but it's so small there was no place to hang it. So I built a cottage to go around it.















There are more pictures and a little tour on my blog, as well as how I made nearly everything. (Or got it from Alpha Stamps.) So much fun!

Absolutely amazing!  That is one stunning and intricate little environment.  There are so many great details and decorations, but my favorite is the skull with the dripping red candle on top.

Thanks everyone! At some point I had to just walk away from this project because I was thinking of more things to cram in there and it was getting a little out of hand.  Tongue

Fabulous! Do you have a picture of the whole shebang or just the detail shots?

Thanks, lindy! The cottage is a three-sided room box, about 9" x 10". Kind of like knickertwist's Wandry Room only waaaay simpler.

So I built a cottage to go around it.

Spoken like a true craftster!  Cheesy

I love all the details! I love that it is a very cluttered cottage - it feels lived in.
