SSIC The Door

Can you believe it is Sunday already - that means it is time for this weeks Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge - it has been so inspiring seeing all of the cards that are being added to each weeks challenge.

This weeks challenges is brought to us by Rebekkah:
 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.''  Mt. 7:7-8 7

Rebekkahs' challenge is  have a window or a door on your creation.

Which was easy when you own the Darkroom Door The Door image - I love this set and have coloured it using the Crayon Resist Technique and along with the Cracked Glass Technique.

I always have a little chuckle when I attempt the Cracked Glass Technique - the first time I did I I had seen that someone put it in the freezer once they had added the glaze - so I did that and an hour layer when I brought it out it was covered in frost and icicles - I did not know whether to cook it for dinner or throw it out!  LOL!  I have actually kept it and have it framed on my desk as a reminder....LOL!

This card is for the following challenges:
Drunken Stampers - Tell us what you did this Summer
Totally Gorjuss - Its a Man thing
Cards - Favorite Vacation Destination - The Rocks in Sydney
Crafty Ann's - something outside comfort zone - Cracked glass Technique
 Stamp Something - anything goes 
  Just For Fun - Vintage
