B&W Haunted House Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)


Yesterday was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this one layer, Black and White, Haunted House Card.

To create this card I used stamps from a Jane's Doodles 'Haunted House' stamp set. 

For a card base I used Canson XL Mixed Media Paper and created my spooky scene directly on the card base.

First I stamped a haunted house, then I drew Moon with fine liner and handmade circle stencil and lastly stamped bats all over the card. 

Next up was coloring. I LOOOOVE Black & White photos and love to color B&W. I colored my card in watercolor technique using only Distress Inks Black Soot. After coloring I left the card to dry on air.

I'm very satisfied with my coloring on this card. :o)

Card dimensions: 95 mm x 127 mm (3 3/4" x 5")
