Honesdale is Haunted

I got some new stamps from justjohanna and so I made some cards. This is one I can show you. The other one I made today is being submitted to a magazine.

The row of buildings here is called Honesdale. I also used the three sizes of bat stamps. The first thing I did was take a large jar lid and used it as a template for the moon. I held the lid down on the white cardstock and stippled VersaMagic ink in three different colors around the jar lid. Afterwards, I used the lightest color to stipple color in the moon.

Then I stamped the honesdale stamp near the bottom of the card. Since I wanted the buildings to look like they were in shadow, I colored them with my Prismacolor pencils in a darker shade of gray. I imagined that they all had lights on inside, so I colored the windows yellow and a light orange and then used my sparkle pen to add a little pizazz. I stippled the brown street area with VersaMagic ink. After all that was done, I started with the smallest bat, then medium bat and then large bat stamped with Versafine ink. That's it.
