Harlequin Dreams for Crafty Individuals

Another collage style card for Jean at Crafty Individuals.


I stamped the harlequin stamp four times to create the background then used the CI gothic door stamp on some basic grey paper and die cut the Crafty Individuals Lacewing Butterfly. 


Not sure if you can see the Treasure Gold I rubbed on the butterfly and painted with my water brush on the door.


With a strip from one of the CI background paper books, some dictionary paper, and a pen nib,it just all came together.

Well alot of our snow melted yesterday but it's been really cold overnight. I hope it isn't too slippery out there and I hope you are safe and warm if you have been affected by it.

Take care.

Oh, Brenda,
ich bin begeistert...
Ich sehe deutlich das Gold an der Tür.
Und es sieht sehr edel aus.
Wie eine richtige alte und kostbare Tür.
Eine herrliche Karte.

That door tends to be such an overlooked stamp which is a pity as it is amazing especially displayed here, fabulous card Brenda.
