The Open Gate



This is a "just because" card, made with a stamp from my new NEC stash.  It's made from very lightweight white plastic, feels really odd to use but stamps like a dream, I think the make is called La Blanc.  I've stamped it in Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and sponged more ink on.  The DP is Basic Grey Curio, the sentiment from Craftwork Cards and I've Cuttlebugged a panel and added some ribbon.  I've watercoloured a version but prefer this monochrome image, looks quite vintage.
My card is for the following challenges:
The Sweet Stop - sketch
Make It Monday - anything goes
The House That Stamps Built - make a scene
Dutch Dare - distressing
