Today's card features a new-to-me technique. The brick wall! I've seen this technique before, but never really felt like trying it... too lazy I guess! I was spurred on to try it at The Friday Mashup! Their challenge this week was a sketch or the brick wall technique... or a mashup of both! I went with the colour challenge at Create With Connie and Mary. It's really beautiful!
I chose to mashup my challenge and do the sketch along with the brick wall technique. It turned out perfectly using my CCMC colour combo as well.
Since I don't know yet what I will be using this card for, I went with no sentiment, instead opting to use a row of pearls. I stamped my main image on First Edition DSP, and after cutting my 'bricks', I sponged them all with Early Espresso ink, mounted them on Very Vanilla, which I adhered to some Island Indigo DSP for a tiny border, and then finally adhered to Early Espresso CS. I used my Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch for a tiny peek of Island Indigo at the bottom. Using my Early Espresso and Summer Starfruit markers to colour my image was a cinch and couldn't have worked out any nicer. I love the look of it stamped on the First Edition.
Thanks for taking the time to look! Leave me a comment.... I read and appreciate each and every one of them! Have a great day!
