Wednesday Stamper - Openings

The opening and closing of doors is so symbolic. It can represent opportunities both gained and lost. The closing of one door can facilitate the opening of another. That was what I was thinking when I created this artist trading card using beeswax collage techniques. The background is scrapbook paper. I stamped on tissue paper and applied it with a quilting iron. This is my entry for this week's Wednesday Stamper challenge.
