Halloween House Mouse!
It's time to be starting those Halloween projects. Here is one of my very favorite Halloween cards I made using House Mouse images available through Stampendous! People keep asking me about the bricks. I colored the bricks using a combination of E30 & E31. I then shaded around each brick using W1 & W3. Then I randomly added specks of W1, W3, E31 and the blender. It was loads of fun. I wanted the mortar to look a different shade of gray so I used the cool grays C1, C3 and the blender. For the Pumpkin be sure to put your darkest colors/shades in the valleys and the lighter colors or your highlights on the hills... Pumpkins have lots of hills and valleys. You can get the stamp here

This gave depth and volume to my image. I hope you will give it a try... and all those yummie embossing enamels by Stampendous are always loads of fun for added texture on your projects (available here). Thanks for reading my blog, I hope you enjoy the projects!
