Can you see how the windows are lit up?? There is a tea light behind the house that I enlarged from one of my favorite stamps because it's so versatile.
Here it is with the lights on. You might ask what the green stuff is...moss.
I used lots of distress ink and Rock Candy all over. Love what Rock Candy does to things.
Sorry for all of the photos but, it's hard to photograph really. Below is the house without the candle light. I started out creating a "congrats on your new home" card for my mom and this is what it ended up to be. When we were little my mom always told us that she was a witch...a good one and had a laugh to prove it...lol
I had to photograph these little goblins in the day light..lol I colored them with Copics. I had fun coloring the "witch" hair and added purple streaks.
This is a regular sheet of copy paper so it's a nice size. Outline your image with a black marker. (for this I used a regular Sharpie marker)
Cut the image into pieces. I ended up cutting off the roof on each one too.
Trace the houses onto some thick cardboard or grunge board. I always save any cardboard that comes with any packaging as I am sure you do too. After tracing cut out the windows with a blade or small scissors.
Please note that on the side of the houses I cut beyond my tracing (created tabs) so that I have something to attach to the center house.
Scrap Dots. After adding my blops of scrap dots I placed the roof on top and set aside to work on the other two houses and my Halloween images.
I'm going to link the color of distress inks in the supply photos at the bottom of my post. Any colors will look great with rock candy on top. The texture on the house was in the copy of the stamp that I scanned.
I created an easel to prop everything up on the back like you do for your cards. Vellum is behind the windows and gives them a nice soft glow. I think that explains everything.
