The House on Haunted Hill

I love looking at the macabre art forms that people show around Halloween but I've never been very good with making things super scary. As you'll see this is a very cute Haunted House but I hope with the use of the distressed style of papers from Basic Grey that I managed to get a little "dark" into it :)

Challenges:

Peartree Designs - Sketch and Gems
Haunted Design House - Horrific Haunts
Gingerloft - Happy Haunting
Ann's Creative Nook - Halloween
Paper Garden - Halloween
The Burtonesque Dolls - Trick or Treat
Corrosive - Unused Stash
AI Factory - Anything Goes
Charisma - Anything Goes
Digi Doodles Shop - Emboss It
Stamp Insanity - Emboss
Flutterby - Special Challenge, Anything with Wings (my bat)
Fab N Funky - Quote Me Happy (quote from the movie The House on Haunted Hill)


Card Recipe:
Image - Haunted House from Halloween Accessories set
Medium - Copic Markers and Airbrush System
Paper - Basic Grey Eerie
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Sentiment - Printed in Burton's Nightmare font
Jewel brads - Recollections
Embossing Powder - Stamp N Stuff Starry Night (used on the spider web border)



My 4 year old doesn't like the green pumpkins, "Mummy they should be orange", but I tried to tell him they were unripe and so perfect for my Haunted House, I don't think he believed me though :)
