Hello stampers! We'd like to share some projects using the Brick Wall Background Stamp!
Details from Teresa: Isn't it the perfect grungey background for a boy themed card?
For this background, I chose some patterned paper and then covered it in a thin layer of gesso. While it was wet, I stamped the Brick Wall Background into it and left it to dry. Then I sponged some Vintage Photo Distress Ink on the edges, and stamped the word 'Skater' with Coffee Archival ink.
To complete the card, the skater image was stamped with Coffee Archival ink onto kraft cardstock, then fussy cut. I also made a second generation impression of the words 'Born to SK8' int he top right hand corner to look like faded graffiti.
Marjie has used the Brick Wall in the title of her art journal page:
Details from Marjie: I stamped the Brick Wall Background onto manila card and then diecut letters from it using the Sizzix Block Talk die. I stamped the Brick Wall repeatedly on the page using Distress Inks, and then colored in with Distress Stains, leaving a very subtle background. You can see some of the wall showing through in the photo below:
I printed a quote from George Lucas onto the Sizzix ticket die:
Belinda has created a couple of projects using the Brick Wall:
Details from Belinda: It may be the completely wrong time of the year, but when I first saw the NEW Brick Wall Background Stamp I immediately thought of Christmas. Santa coming down the chimney and all that. Besides, if I don't get them made now I never will! LOL
So today I have two Christmas cards to share with you.
