A repeat

Same image, different colours!

I've seen so many cards out there done up with this Door with Wreath and no wonder, it is a stunning image. I know I've coloured it before but knew I wanted to do it again...mainly because my original card went to Emily for display at her booth and I couldn't let this Christmas slide without sending one out. I could have just done a repeat of my original, but how boring would that be. I wanted to do a red door but Paulabella screamed noooooooooooo when I told her because she was doing a red door (we no likey to compete) so I decided to do a brown door with a red shovel.

I used E40 thru E44 on the door and warm greys on the frame with G82, 94 and 99 on the wreath. Again I added some green glitter to the wreath and liquid applique doused with glitter for the snow. I let the liquid applique dry overnight and then heated it just slightly to puff it up a bit. Helen, who works for Emily at the Stamping Bella boooo-tique said many people asked what glitter I used on the wreath, so for inquiring minds it is Art Institute, Ultra fine, #167 Rain Forest Transparent. whew! And for the snow, I used Hero Arts prisma glitter (one of my fav all purpose go-to glitters when i want iridescence)

After I had it all coloured I searched my paper stash and had NOTHING to match it...a good excuse to make a trip to Pickle and low and behold, this piece of Crate Paper from the Restoration collection could NOT have been more perfect. I think I may go back and get a couple more sheets just in case I decide to make a few more of these for my stash.

Till next time, later....Linda.

Hi Linda! I LOVE the door in brown! Glad you colored it that way. I really loved your door in white as well. With your coloring skills you could make any color look amazing though!! Happy Holidays...Hugs, Mary.
