Watercolor Technique for a Happy Scenes Halloween!

Halloween will be here before you know it, and the Happy Scenes stamp with the Hearth & Home Framelits will help you get in the mood!  In fact you can celebrate any fall or winter occasion with this versatile stamp set and coordinating dies.  Stampin’ Up! has bundled them so you’ll save 15% on the pair, which makes cardmakers and paper crafters really happy!

You’ll love coloring this scene, and using the window frame to set it off.  Take a look at the sample in this post, too:  Holiday Paper Crafting.  Add the creepy spider and a “BOO” tag, and you’re ready to send Halloween wishes to friends and family!

You can have fun adding dimension to the scene by adding a piece of Window Sheet (stamped with the spider and web in Black StazOn) to the back of the frame. Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to the watercolored piece.
