inspirationavenue Magical!

I created this piece for a swap at my Paperwhimsy group. You were to make a little house based on a character from a children's story or fairy tale.
I chose Tom Thumb.
We are having our kitchen repainted and I had to clean out all the cupboards. I found this butter dish I bought(which at the time seemed like a good idea) and decided it would make a good glass house. I worked on it this last week and just finished it yesterday!
Thanks for a timely challenge to share my art creation!
