Brick Wall Mashup...


This week over at the Friday Mashup, Tara's got a cool technique for us to play with...

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".

I wanted to try something masculine with this technique so I pulled out a new set I got recently but haven't used yet - Zoo Review...

I created the brick wall backdrop with a piece of Very Vanilla, stamped with one of the trees from Lovely as a Tree a couple of times with Sahara Sand, then cut up into 'bricks' and sponged, then put back together on Baked Brown Sugar cardstock. The giraffe was stamped and coloured with Baked Brown Sugar ink then fussy cut and layered over the top with dimensionals. The dsp in the background is the Epic Day This & That collection. I added a piece of washi tape and a torn border in Crushed Curry card, as well as the sentiment from Teeny Tiny wishes.

Make sure you check out the creations from the rest of the design team this week!

Thanks for stopping by...

  1. Love this, Amy! Nice subtle background, and the ripped card stock and washi tape are great touches!

  2. I adore this card. Such great, soft colours! It took me forever to get that set, but it's finally on the way! :)

  3. You created a beautiful scene with these sets Amy! I just love the subtle trees in the background and the giraffe looks right at home.

  4. Wow Amy! You always amaze me with your creations. You created a terrific scene and the hexagons in the background look wonderful. I would have never thought of that, very creative.
    Hugs ;)

  5. Wow! Amy, this is such a fantastic creation! The fun bright colors and that beautiful giraffe with the trees behind him... Absolutely gorgeous!!!

  6. Gorgeous!!! What a great idea to use the Tree as your background... This looks so elegant!
