Door

This week's Wednesday Stamper challenge is entitled door.




This didn't turn out quite as planned, and looks a bit skew-whiff, but that's the angle of the open door (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!). The statue marbling isn't as obvious on the scan.
However, the overall feel is of an Italianate garden.
