And here is my take on this weeks sketch
This image in this card is the wooden door digi from Tracy Vinson's "Behold, I stand at the door" I decided to give it a Halloween treatment. I printed the door twice, cut them out and layered the frame on with little foam pads. The vines around the door are pieces of a curly willow tree that I kept just for embellishments sake. They were pretty dried out so I soaked them in water an hour or so. I actually got them to "keep shape " by weaving them onto a frame made out of small finishing nails. I put a copy of the door onto a wood block and then placed the nails around where I thought they could hold the vines. Worked out pretty well. After 24 hrs of drying I was able to remove them and glue them onto the door. As if that wasn't enough work, I decided the door needed orange lights! ( of all things )..... The lights were made by stringing tiny orange seed beads onto clear thread and then gluing them in intervals with a dab of crazy glue gel. They were then strung among the vines. And what self-respecting Halloween door wouldn't be complete without some cob webs. Now mind you I used to have a bag of this stuff (SOMEWHERE) from last years card crafting. Do you think I could find the daNG THING? (nah). So, after a trip to 3 stores ( now mind you this IS August) I finally snagged some at "Party City".
Other supplies pressed in to service were my Tim Holtz brick embossing folder, EK Success bat border punch, Prismacolor pencils/gamsol, ribbon, gem and pearls. The finishing touch was a pumpkin made from Fimo clay. Hope you like it!
Have a great week everyone and come back next week for a look at my first CAS (clean and simple) card.
