Art Under Construction


Better late than never, for some reason or another I just couldn’t get to yesterday’s 4 x 4 Friday. You know how life creeps up on you sometimes.

The theme for yesterday’s 4 x 4 Friday was… “Doorways.”

I was so over the love theme with valentines finally behind me so I threw out my first idea of “Door to my Heart” and went with an under construction theme. The Door stamp is from Stampington &Co. and I gold embossed it. It is hard to tell but the sun image above the doorway is painted with orange sparkling H2O’s. The Word stamp on the right hand side is by Tim Holtz, it is actually the word Artist. I highlighted it with diamond glaze, my first use of this fabulous product.

I’m not so sure I followed the rules close enough because the word “construction” is hanging bellow my 4 x 4 making my overall image bigger…I really like the way it looks, kinda hanging like a “wet paint” sign so I didn’t change it.

I am open to any and all comments, always looking for growth.

Hope you enjoy
Caro

Cool card. Your cards look like artwork. I guess that is what we all are aiming for. How and where do you get these images?
