Good morning!! Today I wanted to share a "brick wall" I designed with you. ;-) Quite awhile back I had seen a card using this technique and my card was actually made when I saw it. But... time gets away from you and when I opened my file of "things to post", this popped right out and it hit me I had it for quite some time!! Eeek!! Well, needless to say... I really liked it so better late then never, right?
My card base is Pure Luxury Ocean Mist and I layered on some Key Lime then Kraft card stock. I stamped the flower image from the "True Love Stamp TV Kit" on some DP I had in my stash. I colored with image with my Copics prior to drawing the lines (using a brick wall layout) and cutting the image apart. I have to admit, getting each "brick" straight is NOT an easy task and I thought of a hundred better ways than what I did (though I admit some are still not straight... don't look closely!!! LOL). But... I love the affect overall.
A little hemp and my sentiment stamped below finished off the design.
I am sure I will HAVE to try this again and maybe next time I can feel a little more confident about how the layout went. But... as I said... I still love the look.
Thanks so much for stopping by and if you decide to try this design, send me a note... I'd LOVE to see it!!! Have a great day!! *HUGS*
