LOC FAF The Door

It is Friday and Friday means it is time for Faith Art Friday at Layers of Color.  This week I my inspiration came from a quote that captured me the first time I heard it.

The Door

There are things known
and there are things unknown
and inbetween are the doors
- Jim Morrison -

'I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.'

John 10:9

'Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me'
Revelation 3:20

I have used the Layers of Color Victorian Frame and Brick Wall cling art stamp, Belle Brocade art stencil along with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur to cut out the Labels 14 Nestibilitie and the .  The embossing has been done with Tsukineko Gold Embossing Powder - it is so rich and embosses thickly - it is my favourite embossing powder. The bricks have been coloured with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist that has been lightly painted on.

  11. I really like this card!! Really!! You have such a poignant way of illustrating a principle with the cards you create. Yes, Jesus is a door. But even if we find that it's locked, that's not a hinderance, because he has hung the key right on the handle!! =)
    And what a blessed relationship awaits us when that lock is undone and that door is opened!!
