Even though I didn’t really feel like uploading this particular card, I have spent too much time building this brick wall not to post the results. I shouldn’t have stamped my main image with Soft Suede first (I wanted to create a shadow effect), before stamping it again with Ruby Red Craft ink and clear embossing it. The result, as you can see, is this muddy color; not quite what I had intended!
The color combination I used is this week’s challenge on SCS (Bashful Blue Suede Rubies) and the brick wall technique was Monday’s “Try a New Technique” challenge (TLC256). I cheated a little bit by using grid designer paper, which eliminated the need to draw pencil lines all over my image.
Thanks for stopping by!
