Goodbyes and Open Doors

Two recent projects.

First, is my postcard for this week’s challenge over at Sunday Postcard Art. The theme is “doors.”

This is an interactive postcard :-). Since once the door is opened it isn’t meant to be closed, I didn’t remove the ribbon completely in order to photograph the version with the door open. πŸ™‚ Sorry.

MATERIALS: scalloped cardstock (Target kit) on Strathmore watercolor postcard; 5th Avenue shimmer stickers (Making Memories); acrylic/clear stamps–Swirls V: I by Rhonna Farrer (Autumn Leaves); paper by Anna Griffin (AG933); flower cut from an old notecard I received (Pepperpot by Gift Wrap Co.); Ranger Clear E.P. on Black Pigment ink (ColorBox); metallic red curling ribbon; black eyelets (for latch).

Now, while I have been working mostly with scrapbooking and cardmaking, I do like to do other types of projects. I altered this plain wood picture frame for some friends who are moving away. The picture is a well-loved photo of the four of us together.

I painted it with DreamCoat acrylic paint, used an Amy Butler designer mat (K&Co) K, some ribbon from my stash, some wooden tulips I picked up years ago, and a Sharpie!

    I really like your postcard. πŸ™‚

    Thank you for the nice comments you left at my blog.

    No, I’m not a musician (though dh is), but was a vocalist in high school/college. However, that said, my banner ended up with all those designs by chance.
