Doorway to one's Soul


Over at Fun with Atc's, they are asking for windows / doors.  I created the background by using walnut stain, antique linen and frayed burlap distress paints, sprayed with water and just watched them blend.  I stamped the Urban Snapshots window with black stazon and hi-lighted certain areas with white posca pen. Stamped the words onto white card and edged in walnut stain.

That's smashing, Sam! Love everything about it, the shades of brown in the background, the stamp image and how you highlighted the areas. Loooks very enigmatic and I wonder what lies behind this beautiful door .. Thank you so much for joining us at FwATCs (although I think you forgot to link it up ;o)), Suzanne
