Looking for the door...

Hi everyone. A super quick post today as I'm hitting a deadline here in entering the Fun with ATC's challenge - Windows/Doors. Having always had a passion for architecture and a need currently to get some ATC's done this seemed like a no brainer - except I don't have a door stamp!!! There goes that wish list growing again:) So what to do?


Having already made my Distress Paint rusty background and embossed it with Distress Embossing Powder the search was on for something to fit the bill. And then I spied a Michael Powell stamp with a gateway that could double as a doorway. Having stamped it in Archival Ink it got the layered painting treatment with blue and brown Distress Stains/Inks. A spot of fussy cutting, some clear heat embossing, and done! The sentiment was one which I live by. Told you this would be short and sweet. Until next time hugs to you all, Jenny xxx

  12. Hi Jenny, Very clever idea to use part of your Michael Powell stamp with this little tag. I love the different finishes you have done to give it dimension using the clear glossy emboss on the building but keeping the background still embossed but mat - lovely. Hugs Mo x

  15. It might be short, but in my book it's about quality, not quantity....
    Love the effects you have achieved with this one the glossy finish on the main image against the rusty background! Love that quote too and it's perfect for this challenge!
