Open Door

No matter how I photoed this it always looked like the window was swinging toward the inside, but in real life, it opens to the out side. I put a little scrap of acetate in for the window glass and some polka dot wall paper in the entry way. The designer paper I stamped the door on looks kind of like weathered wood from around the coast
This sketch from Just Add Ink   JAI59-A Sketch Challenge
was just perfect to go with my door stamp, and I colored the flowers and pot with markers and water brush.
Hop over to Just Add Ink, they are a bunch of talented girls from Australia and play along at their challenge this week.

beautiful card..and I quite like the fact that it looks like the door is swinging in, makes it look like you're inviting someone in for tea! :)

What a beautiful image that goes so well with this week's sketch at JAI. I agree the window looks like it is swinging inwards but it doesn't detract from the beautiful card in any way! Thanks for playing at JAI.
