It's a Haunted Affair

Hello all. I-team member Sonja here with my version of the latest haunted house from SDS Haunted House file.
SDS Haunted House 2017

The great thing about this file is it can be so versatile and each designer can really make it their own with a bit of modification on detail. 

One of the ways I was able to modify the house was by embossing brick on the sides, using my Sizzix Bigshot and Darice folder. 
 Then I decided to dry brush ink to age the house.
The difference from dry brushed to not is noticeable when placed next to each other!
 A simple paint brush and ink is all it takes.
The next modification I did was making roof tiles, which I aged with some white ink and a paint brush.
 I curled the ends of each tile with the end of the paintbrush. I wanted it to look old so some are curled under and some are over!
 I also dry brushed the decking on the front porch and both Juliet balconies.
The final modification I did was use vellum for all the windows/front door so that when I placed a light on this inside, it would illuminate the windows/door.
Finalized project:
