Haunted House

I had a lot of fun making this haunted house.  I started off with some cardstock that had a wood grain print on it and then embossed it with Tim Holtz wood plank embossing folder and then sponged on some distress inks. I didn’t have the rooftop die so I had to be creative and got out my rosette die and used it as the roof top.

I painted a plain wood plaque with black soot paint and when that was dry I put globs of glue onto it and place the moss on top.  The fence was made using the on the fence die that I then colored in with pumice stone paint and while still wet sprinkled on pumice stone embossing powder and heat set.  I also used the same technique on the tree (Tim Holtz die). The bats were from the Halloween Shadows die and the graveyard also. I used the mini scaredy cat die and mini pumpkin die and cut them with shrink dinks and after they shrank I painted them with distress paints. A whole lot of Tim products were used here.

I can’t wait to start on a Christmas house.
