Brick Wall Flowers


Well, I finally got some stamping done today. This cold has really zapped my energy, but I think I'm on the mend now. I made this card today but I also made some super fun things that I can't wait to show you on Dec 20th, for the Taylored Expressions monthly Key Ingredients!!!   :)

I've been dying to try the Brick Wall tutorial from Splitcoast and the large flower image from Discover Your Wings seemed like the perfect image, so I gave it a whirl! I'm a numbers girl...I love measuring and lining things up so this technique is right up my alley. The layout is this week's Mojo sketch, Mojo117. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto kraft and followed the tutorial for the brick effect. I adhered the bricks onto Choice Buttercream then cut out the image with circle Nestabilities. I layered it onto more Buttercream then a scalloped circle of black. I didn't introduce any other colours because I didn't want to detract from the focal image. I layered up some more Buttercream, kraft and black then tied a pretty bow. I decided not to add a sentiment so I can use this card for just about any occasion.

Don't forget that Discover Your Wings is the current TE Giving Tree Charitable Set. A portion of the proceeds of each set sold will benefit Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. This is a wonderful set to purchase for yourself or as a gift and you still have time to order for Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by!
