I used linen textured card for the base card and die cut an arched door on the front half. I then cut some Kraft card in the same die and embossed it in a folder. I blended DI over the Kraft card to emphasise the pattern, then attached it to the card. I added gold gilding wax to a couple of grey board embellishments and attached them to the door as hinges.
I added a brad as a handle. I then used the Silhouette Palace stencil across the top of the card front with DI. I stamped the sentiment along the bottom of the card and blended DI around the edges.
On another piece of card I used black DI through the Russian Spires stencil. I coloured the image with Brushos, let it dry then covered it with the matching mask. I used watercolour ink to create a background and added turquoise Brusho. I used gold pen onto another piece of card to create a mat for the focal panel, and attached it.
I attached the focal panel to the inside of the base card. The idea is that you look through an old doorway to a castle.
I'm so pleased with the result of this design. I had the idea for it but I wasn't sure that it would work - luckily it did! I love the way the old door opens and you can look through the doorway to the colourful castle inside. I love using Brushos, and I think they work so well in this design.
Thank you for popping by today, I hope that you've enjoyed this post and I'll see you again soon :)
