Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge 2!

So the challenge set by Linda over at L3 is page 56 of Tim's book Compendium of Curiosities 3.

I downloaded this castle cut file from SVG Cuts as a Mother's day gift to me from me and promptly set about decorating the castle with distress inks through a stencil I made from Tim's brick die in Picked raspberry and the inside of the castle and the sky with Salty ocean.

I then followed the instructions on page 56 and covered the roofs of the castle with Rock Candy Distress Glitter.

Below you can see how the castle folds flat to fit in an envelope.

To get the "wall" across the back of the castle, I folded the wall back on itself and inked the top with Salty ocean, which then meant that the inside of the castle also had to be blue, but seeing as it is my castle in the sky...that is fine by me!

 Thanks for the visit.
