For this 6.25" x 3.5" card I wanted to create a happy little scene. The house is watercolored with SU watercolor crayons and an aquapainter and then the brick mortar was drawn in with a gray Copic marker. There is Crystal Effects covering the windows for shine and dimension. See those cute little orange flowers? Those were actually my hubby's idea! I used one of the stars that comes attached to the house image to create the flowers and I hand drew in the stems and leaves. I cut all three stars off the house image to use them separately. A little tip if you decide to do the same - you do not need to trim them super close because the SASI rubber is so deeply etched you will not have much problem with catching edges. I actually trimmed mine a little too close and they are so small that there's barely enough cling mount to stick to my acrylic blocks. LOL! Live and learn!
Now what about those trees? Have you figured out how I made the leaves? Yep - the leaves are made with the image of the three bats! How cool is that? I'm not usually one to *think outside the box* like that so when I came up with this idea I was totally bouncing out of my chair! I've made up a quick tutorial using fall colors to show you how to make a tree for any season that's not scary at all using that haunting tree image from Frightful Night.
And you have to also see the Fall tree that Sharon Harnist created with just the tips of her Copic markers - check it out here. Very cool Sharon! My challenge to you is to create a card or scrapbook page using the tree from Frightful Night in a totally non-scary way! Let's see what you can come up with. Post your creation to the SCS gallery with 2 keywords (with a comma in between) - SASI, SASItree. Bonus points (LOL!) for using other stamps from that set in new or different ways!
Here are some other examples of Happy non-haunted houses from the Baker's Dozen:
A note about uploading Stamp a Sweet Impressions creations to SCS - there is now a company gallery listed for Taylored Expressions. ALL the company galleries are completely keyword driven, so to make sure your uploads shows in the TE Gallery please be sure to use the keyword SASI. There are other keywords that also work, but SASI is the simplest most sure-fire one to use.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a sweet day!
