Halloween House

Is it too early to work on Halloween projects?  No! That's the wonderful thing about the crafting world is the holidays can last all year long and you can create in any season you want.  :D  After all, in order go stock up on holiday cards, I have to work on them throughout the year, so why not Halloween projects too?!  He he he



This is a project I created using the Haunted House stamp from Make it Crafty which comes in digital and in rubber form.  I wanted to keep the card simple so I enlarged the image as big as possible then spend my time working on the details of the image.  The tombstones where colored with Copic Warm Gray colors then YG91 and YG93 were used to add moss to the stones.  The tried my hand at metals too so you'll see some silver (done with Copic Cool grays) and tarnished copper (done with E90's and a touch of E07, E15 and E13 for the aged areas.)


Every time I color a house, I'm always tempted to "leave all the lights on" and color all the windows in a yellow glow.  This is because I remember my Mom likes the Thomas Kincaid paintings and he always has the lights on.  She says it's so cozy and inviting.  :D  So do you think it worked for this house?
