The prompt this week on the Colour Me Positive site was: Opportunity. The art challenge told us to use ribbon on our spread. I adapted several quotations into one which reads: "When opportunity comes knocking, you had better answer the door". 

The background was done with multiple layers of paint and just one stencil (the large one from the February 2015 Stencilgirl Club) To this I added the circular form from the April 2016 club. I also used rubber stamping (from the Rust & Dust set designed by Finnabair for Prima) as well as the text stamp that says:"There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors" (Jim Morrison). This comes from the Doors set by Darkroom Door.

I collaged on bits of a vintage bingo card as well as the person who comes knocking. you might recognize her as Red Riding Hood who perhaps found more opportunity than she bargained for when she came knocking. I found these doors (attached to a house) on the Houses stencil, also by Stencilgirl.

To answer the ribbon art challenge I added a bit of a flower garden to some of the houses with pieces of flower trim which were glued on with gel medium. A postage stamp with tulips helped to add colour to the garden too.

The quotation was written on by hand with a white marker and outlined with a pink gel pen.
