Welcome to the Neighborhood!

Do your recognize this image?  Well, let me refresh your memory....

It's the Happy Haunting image from Your Next Stamp!!  I was THRILLED (and so impressed with myself, LOL) when I came up with this idea.  I can think of nothing better than a multi-purpose stamp and this a good one!!  I came up with the idea really out of desperation.  My mom wanted a card to give to her new neighbors and asked me to make one for her.  I don't have any "house" stamps other than a haunted house, so I wasn't sure what I was going to do.  Then it hit me to just cover the "scary" parts of the haunted house with flower soft!!  :)  The path was created by dotting it with different shades of brown to resemble pebbles and glossy accents on the windows to make them look reflective.


Copic's Used:
Roof: E57, E29, E35, E31
