A New Road!

It is an Artistic Outpost blog hop and there are new and exciting things happening and I will be taking "A New Road" and I am sure loving the journey! For more information about the AO new adventure click HERE and HERE for the new direction. You will want to join in the blog hop and check out all the exciting and fabulous creations my DT Sisters have for you.

This is the first time I have used the Windows and Doors collection and just love them and thought it was so appropriate for all avenue AO will be traveling. This vintage old door is so inviting and along with the sentiment was stamped using Wendy's Watering Can Archival ink. I wanted a softer feel and chose to not go with black ink. Will also link this up to Inspiration Journal's "A Few of My Favorite Things" AO and Tim, you know it and Simon Says Stamp Monday "Big Stamp."

I used sponge applicators to add Vintage Photo, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters for coloring the bricks and foliage and the door with Antique Linen.
The sentiment was inked with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo and of course distressed. For the tag background, I inked over Tim's Lattice stencil with Distress inks of the previous colors and added a few rub-ons for fun!
 

Thank you so much for visiting today and have a wonderful day!
