Haunted House


Hey everyone! Well Liberty took her nap today.. and I really needed.. wait I NEEDED some crafty time.. so I took it! :) If you know me.. crafty time is my destressor.. soo :) my house didn't really get cleaned.. but I got a craft project done does that count? lol :) I haven't done much with Halloween this year, so I really wanted to make something fun for my house! :) sooo.. I created a cute haunted house..
before putting this together, I stamped some spiderwebs (using Market Street Stamps for this whole thing..)on the house in white and heat embossed them. then I wanted to add some fun little things.. Like a cute ghost, a couple flying bats, some little spiders.. and I just had randomly won this set from Market Street Stamps.. and really wanted to ink them up.. :) so I used this collection called Sweet Spooks... LOVE it!!
There are so many little details on this project..
The spiders on the webs have some black stickles placed on top of them..
I really wanted this house to have texture.. so I bent the fence, and also added some black distress ink all over the whole project so that it gave it nice shadows and made things stand out a bit more..
I placed the bats and ghost on wire to make them seem like they are flying :) also I used some green vellum behind the windows to give it a glow.. :)
I am for sure entering this into the Market Street Stamps block party..(since I totally used only their amazing stamps :) Thanks for looking :) hugs
