Sunday Postcard Art - Doors

There are a few challenge sites that I like to visit.  My problem is that after I see them all (each one begins and ends on a different day), and jot down the prompt, it is almost too late for me to create something and post it.  This time I did the smart thing and read ahead!  Boy am I glad that I did.  Sunday Postcard Art posted the prompt "Doors"  and I was all over that one.  
The picture is an original that I took at the Mission San Juan Capistrano (yes, the same ones that the swallows have flown back to on St. Joseph's Day for decades.)  And for good measure, I printed it out on a transparency.  I wasn't sure if I was going to back it with faint writing.   Not sure about what I was going to do with the background, I decided to drag out my Adirondack alcohol inks and started playing on some glossy card stock I bought 5 years ago and forgot about.  Too my very pleasant surprise what I came up with almost matched the stucco on the walls in the picture.  The words "Waiting on You"  are also on a transparency, but I have to thank ArtChix for that.
I am very please with the way that it all turned out.
