For the project I'm featuring today, I created a Spooky Halloween scene using the "Halloween Silhouettes" and the "My Neighborhood" stamp sets.
Here's the pic for you to check out
To create the "spooky" mansion, it took a lot of trial and error.
I used selective stamping and masking techniques to combine two of the homes into one giant residence.
Next I colored it in using my alcohol markers in C04, C06, and C08.
I used a YR04 marker to fill in the windows.
With the house complete, I stamped the picket fence, raven and bats from the "Halloween Silhouettes" set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
For the picket fence I performed a little surgery to cut the stamp in half.
Sorry. It needed to be done for me to achieve the look I was going for.
This made it easier for me to stamp it exactly where I wanted it.
After all of my stamping was complete, I trimmed the image panel down to 4 3/4" x 7 1/2".
Now it was time to color in the background.
For this next step, I used a technique I learned from one of my G+ friends, Paola Jofre.
She has a YouTube channel and a wonderful tutorial on how to create this type of background.
Here's the link for you to check out:
So using what I learned from her tutorial, I went for it.
I used my C0 markers in C03, C05, C07, and C09.
The result is a nice halo frame around the entire panel.
I then added shading to all the stamped elements using my C03, C05 and C07 markers.
To finish the scene off, I added highlights and the sentiment "Trick or Treat" using stickers from a Pebbles Inc "Fall" sticker set.
And ta-da!! Scene complete!!
I hope you enjoyed this project for today!!
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your day, and Peace!! :)
