Day One of the 31 Days of Halloween
If you've happened across this page accidentally, check out the whole 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop by starting with the link to Terra's page under the blogroll on the sidebar. She's got all the info you need to know to hop along and maybe even win a prize or two.
This project started off as a prop for my Halloween decorations but I'd never worked with foamcore board before. Three days and a package of X-Acto blades later, I decided it had to become a "real" project. I thought about stamping spooky words on it but I really liked it black. I came up with the solution to add lots of polymer clay dimensional elements - roofs, windows, doors, a porch. The stamping happened as a way to texture those elements, especially the roofs. I used mostly an old Provocraft spiral stamp but there's also a design element stamp from 100 Proof Press in there.
Okay, get back to your hoppin'. You've hung in there and you're getting close to the finish line.
