The Door to my Heart
While this card does not have a door stamp on it since I didn’t have one, but I did have a key (Delta/Rubber Stampede) and a lock (Rubber Monger), I thought to make the card appear as though it was a piece of a door. I’ve been wanting to find a woodgrain stamp for various projects and when, sometime ago, I watched a painting video showing a graining tool (ZAR/United Gilsonite Laboratories), I ran to my local True Value Hardware (Home Depot have these too) and bought this rubber stamp tool in the painting section. I broke the package open for this week’s “door” challenge for Stampin’ Sisters in Christ.
It takes a bit of practice to get the grain to look just right and I’m going to have to practice with various other inks and paints. My husband was breathing down my neck today - he’s wanting to go somewhere, so I was in a hurry to make this card. It seems to be missing something. Can you tell me what you would do to improve it if it was your card? I love positive feedback!
Have a happy day!
I just had to tell my Daddy Lord “Thank You” today for coming in!
