Day 9 of 31- Haunted Mansion

Welcome to Day 9 of the 31 Days of Halloween! Today I have a project featuring the Haunted Mansion stamp from Stampendous.

I colored the image with my Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. The stamp is so big that the card came together pretty quickly, which is awesome. I rubbed lots of fabulous Brown Shimmer Delicata Ink from Imagine all around the border of my once-white card base.

Then, I dripped some faBOOlous Love Letter irRESISTable (also from Imagine) around the edge. This mansion looks like a very old vampire could be living there, so the "blood" was a necessity.

There you have it! Don't forget to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fangtastic day!
