Papertrey Posse October Parade of Blogs

As I mentioned before, I am the October hostess for the Papertrey Posse blog. For our Parade of Blogs challenge, I asked everyone to use their Halloween stamps to make a piece of home decor. Here is the inspiration for my project-the lable on my Bath and Body Works soap dispenser!

I used the idea of a haunted house to make this little wall plaque:

I used the house from Boards and Beams and stamped it on a piece of Smokey Shadow. I then used my gray (C1, C3, C5, C7) and black copic markers to color and shade some of the house. I then used a yellow and orange copic to color in the windows. It doesn't show up super bright, but instead makes it look like there is a soft glow coming from the inside of the house. I finished off the house by adding a little ghostie in the lower left hand window. I painted him on with my Shimmerz Blinz paint in Pixie Dust. Next, I stamped the tree from Falling Leaves (I masked it and only stamped part of the tree so it would be in better proportion with the house)and added the fence. The stars were made using Black Diamond Stickles and the bats are from Spooky Sweets. I just stamped them on shrink plastic, cut them out and shrunk them! I finished the project off with a sentiment from Spooky Sweets 2. I really like how this project turned out and I would love to know what you think!
