"Openings" - Guest Hostess @ GOTHIC ARCHES

What an honour!!

This piece was made as a guest hostess challenge for Gothic Arches, no less!!! I never expected to get the opportunity to do this, so I am thrilled. PLUS, I am on my second night of very little sleep because of this dratted knee. I think the injection is wearing off, so I just can't get comfortable!! Seeing my work over on the GA site cheered me up no end and the date of the operation has been brought forward to Saturday next  - 5th June, so the end is in site I hope...

Well, what did I use?? Many yumminess stamps like Darkroom door and Crafty Individuals as well as Tim Holtz and a Judikins cube from Stamp Addicts, for the large lock at the top. I used Archival black and distress inks, worked on with the TH tool and colour duster brushes. I LOVE the quote as I loved the group, and I thoroughly enjoyed making the piece with lots of layers and subtleties... Thanks everso for looking and please do go and join in to support me this week at Gothic Arches, it's always a great challenge. I have also entered the piece for a super challenge over at Collage Obsessions...

You piece for GA is spectacular. Love it! And, it also fits the DOOR theme over at Collage Obsession. Best of luck with your knee surgery; it will make a difference if you follow up with the therapy exercises.
