FM114 Parisian Brick Wall

Hello Everyone!  Time for another Friday Mashup challenge.  This week Tara is bringing back a technique I had forgotten all about, the brick wall technique.

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using the "Sketch".
  2. Create a project using the "Brick Wall Technique".
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project using the "Sketch with the Brick Wall Technique".
The Postage Due stamp set has been giving me the pig-eye for not inking it up (or even mounting it) yet.  It was as if this challenge was made for it!  A great background and a great background technique is like peas and carrots.

There I go again, flying by the seat of my pants without a sentiment - ha!

Stamps: Postage Due, Artistic Etchings; Paper: Riding Hood Red, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Fan Fair DSP; Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Black Stazon; Accessories: Linen Thread, Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch, Sponge, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is gorgeous, Heidi - what a perfect stamp set to use for this technique!

Lisa said...

Such an elegant card Heidi, and I dont think it needs a sentiment at all. The images really speak for themselves.

This is so pretty and elegant! I really love how you combined all those stamp images to make your antique brick panel!

Amy White said...

Fabulous choice of stamp set for this sketch and technique! (Must get that one out and play with it again...). Love how you've popped the Eiffel Tower over the top as well!
