Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #19

What a fun sketch Beate came up with this time. . .although, she always comes up with something good! :) I decided to go with something for Halloween for this sketch. I have LOVED this Home Is Where the Haunt Is set since I bought it a couple of years ago, but I haven't used it very much. It was time to pull it out! I tried to create a sort of "haunted house" scene, but I'm not sure it worked. I think maybe I should have made the "stepping stones" a different color. I don't know. The pillars at the gate are on dimensionals to give the 3D effect that you have to walk through them to get to the house. I don't recommend cutting out the iron gate. . .it was very tedious with the hobby blade. The windows were colored over with a Sakura clear glaze pen. I don't know if you can tell from the picture that they look glassy. I added a "paperclip" with the 1" circle punch and the slit punch in the upper left corner of the card. I needed somewhere to put a little ribbon, and that's what I came up with. I found I kept running out of room on the card. I think next time I'll have to make it a little bigger. :) Check out what Beate, Lori, Jenn and Sharon have created! I'm going to do that now! Thanks for visiting! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Home Is Where the Haunt Is; Paper- Halloween Night retired DS paper, DCWV yellow and orange, Whisper White; Ink- Palette in Noir, Craft Whisper White; Accessories- 1" , 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches, slit punch, ticket corner punch, Making Memories brads, craft knife, paper piercer, Black marker, Sakura clear glaze gel pen.

Love the layout and choices for stamps...almost makes me wish I made Halloween cards. I'm assuming that your doodling is free-hand. Is it a creative moment or do you get your ideas somewhere? I love the touch doodling adds to a card.

Nancy Riley said...

INCREDIBLE! I can't believe all the detail you've put into this card! It's amazing!

I love the card! I wasn't sure those were stepping stones until I read the description, maybe grey would have worked better. I really like what you did. Spooky, spooky, spooky, love this set and just got it too. If you feel like you are running out of room next time try a square card maybe, they always seem so big when i am making them.
