Come for Tea and a Hair Cut!

This week's Teapot Tuesday over on Split Coast was a wonderful castle teapot. I was inspired by the castle walls and made this card using a fun mosaic tile stamp from Starving Artists that I've had for ages but never inked up yet.(I say that about so many stamps! LOL!)
You ink the stamp with Versamark - then over stamp it in a color using a flower stamp (or whatever) stamp it on card stock - and then clear emboss it. I love how it came out!
The window and sentiment are also from Starving Artistamps/Doodle Factory. The story is that Rapunzle is a hairdresser in the castle and she's trying to drum up business. Hopefully this pretty wall will be inviting to people who walk by and they'll stop in for Rapunzle to cut their hair - ya think??
This also fits the Tuesday Doubledog Dare challenge this week where jdmommy (Anne) challenged us to use some kind of frame on our card. I used a window frame!

Paper: white - PTI, Sahara Sand - SU
Ink: Versamark, Ocean Tides - PTI, Memento Tuxedo black

I really like the technique you've used and Rapunzel's castle. Which reminds me, I also really love your photo of the doubled arched entry to the monastery. Wow.
