House Of Cards Fairy Door

     Welcome to a new challenge at the House Of Cards, this month we would like to see lots of layers and/or the colours in the photo prompt shown below.
      The brick wall in the picture really got me thinking and I love the greyish shades of pink so I die cut some brickwork and coloured it with Distress Ink, then set about colouring the background wall.
     I have a fairy door die which seemed just right for this so that was cut from kraft card and then coloured with alcohol markers. I put the cut out pieces of the step back in, the keyhole and the heart aswell. Behind the window I have put some acetate coloured black so it shines like glass and covered the heart with glossy accents.
     The tiny flowers are punched from card coloured with markers, gently shaped and stuck on to the vine with tiny gems in the centres.
      The main panel with the brickwork and door is mounted on white card coloured with the same green marker as the vine and the next layer coloured to match the bricks. This is then stuck on to a white card blank coloured with Distress Ink, then water stamped with swirls. Once dry it is then stamped with swirls again but in gold ink to give it a little bit of a lift.
     This card has no sentiment on it, that will be added later when it's use is decided, it would make quite a good New Home card though.
     Below is the photo prompt for House Of Cards so come and join us when your inspiration strikes and show us what you've made.
