I haven't posted for a while because of holidays etc so I was really looking forward to seeing what Mandi and Chrissie had for us this week. As soon as I saw the challenge, I had an idea.
I decided that I wanted to make a door - in a frame, of course.
My first attempt is very close to what I wanted and didn't take very long either.
I measured and marked lightly with pencil, the position and size for my door and then masked it out with post-its, putting the post-it just inside the line.
Then, using TH Distress ink pads, I built up the colour on the door just by dragging the pad down over the card. I used bundled sage, vintage photo and wild honey, using the bundled sage each time between colour changes.
When the ink was dry, I stamped the hinges and knocker using Crafty Individuals stamps and vintage photo distress ink. I painted the keyhole freehand with vintage photo.
The door planks were marked on with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen.
Finally, I removed the post its, rubbed out the pencil lines and did the frame with a sandstone promarker then embossed lines around the outer edge of the door frame.
The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.
Thank you for looking and see you again soon,
