Haunted House

Here is a great scene I created from some stamps I picked up at the Novi stamp convention over the weekend. The sky and the house are from Another Stamp Company The rest of the stamps are from Stampscapes. I airbrushed the sky with BV02, hoping for a kind of streaky spooky feeling. The house is B91 Pale Grayish blue with E13 Light Suntan trim. The shutters are B93 Light Crockery blue. I used C1 Cool Gray to tone down the little bit of trim I felt should remain uncolored. The walk is E41 Pearl White. For the grass I started with G40 Dim Green and then airbrushed YG93 Grayish Yellow around the edges and into the scene. I love Halloween, I really like to decorate my yard for the occasion. I hope you enjoyed my spooky scene.

Your airbrushing is so smooth. You sure are a Master at this. Wonderful scene and I love your blues and greens.

So in your Saturday adventure of Will Work for Stamps-what did you get? There were several vendors I never got to check out-one being the Peel Offs person. I'd say maybe next year but I think if hubby retires like he is threatening, I won't have any money to go. Or maybe he won't have to eat? I love Halloween too-its the only holiday I celebrate. Unless summer is a holiday.

See ya soon.
