From Places Abroad - Cyprus

That's our challenge this month at Altenew.  Since I am a blue girl, the inspiration photo grabbed me right away!  Here's my entry, as it happens, my 2000th post since I started blogging in 2009!


supplies: cream, charcoal, and black cardstock, gold glitter paper, Altenew Beautiful Day stamp set, Ranger Super Fine Detail gold embossing powder, Brilliance Sky Blue, Hero Arts Cornflower, and Brilliance Galaxy Gold inks, Tim Holtz Gothic stencil, modeling paste and more Gold embossing powder, Wplus9 Hand Lettered Thanks die, My Mind's Eye gold enamel dots

Originally my stencilled panel was only 1 piece, but looking at the 2 sides of the door, I split it down the middle and framed the whole thing with gold glitter paper. The leaves and flowers were embossed in gold, then overstamped for color.  Lots of gold along with my favorite color - it really glistens under the lights; wish I could capture it better in my photo!

Here's the inspiration:
