A Chill in the Air with a Haunted House

Well, I don't know what it is like where you live, but here in Michigan, there really is beginning to be a "Chill in the Air", which is this week's Stampendous theme.  I have created a stamped card with a haunted house image straight out of my childhood Halloween fantasies.  It was created using the ultimate childhood art supply--a 24 pack of Crayola Crayons.
Here is how I made it:


Haunted Mansion Rubber Stamp R267
Stazon in Jet Black
White Mixed Media Paper
Crayola 24 Count Crayons--I used Indigo, White, Gray, Violet, Blue Violet, Brown, Yellow Green, Green, Red Violet and Silver
Black Deco Art Paint
Paint Brush
Paper Towels
My Colors Card Stock in Plum and Cloak Gray
Zip Dry


1) Stamp image with Stazon on multi media paper.
2)  Color with crayons.  Make sure to color very hard, filling in everything.  Use bright colors.
3)  Wrinkle the paper.
4)  Flatten the paper.
5)  Thin out the paint.
6)  Paint the image and wipe off the excess with paper towels.
7)  Let the image completely dry before assembling.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my project today.  Here are the links for the day:
