Brick Wall Technique Mashup!

Well I'm once again extremely late with my Friday Mashup card. What else is new? I had it done yesterday but it was one of those cards where I ripped it apart several Seems I do that a lot lately.

This week Tara was our Hostess and she challenged us with a Great Sketch and the Brick Wall Technique. I have never done this technique before and my worked showed that..Ha Ha

I created one background and I cut my brick way too small and threw that one away.. It wasn't working and I had glue all over the I started again and managed to create the background I liked even though it's a bit crooked) . But I didn't like the assembled finish card... He's what I came up with first.

No Bueno!!! I have some mixed emotions about this new Soho Subway DSP I won't lie! So I ripped that apart and went back to the drawing board.. I decided to Sponged all the pieces with some Crumb Cake ink and then I added a layer of Midnight Muse card stock that I scored with the scoring board. 

I like this version much better! I stamped the snowflakes from Snowflake Soiree in Crumb Cake, Island Indigo and Midnight Muse.. I just got my first order of Goodies from the new catalog and I forgot to order a new Color Coach!!! As you can see I'm going to be struggling with color choices for a bit. 

There's still a few hours left to play along with this week's Challenge.. Head over to the Friday Mashup Blog and check out what the other Design Team members created with this technique! Thanks for stopping by I hope you are having a great Wednesday!


  1. Gorgeous card Holly! It is a perfect card for Christmas. I love those snowflakes.
    Hugs ;)

  2. This is so pretty Holly! I love those snowflakes and all the sponging you have added to make this look more vintage! So beautiful!

  3. This is really pretty! It was well worth your efforts, and now you've got another technique to add to your arsenal. :-)

  4. Love the snowflakes with this technique Holly! Such a beautiful vintagey feel for a Christmas card!

  5. Ooh, pretty! I wouldn't have thought of snowflakes for this technique, but I love it! If you sponged in light blue, it would probably look cool too - like a frosted window.

  6. Oh MAN I love the colours in this. It's so perfectly 'winter'. Absolutely gorgeous (stored in the memory banks for future!!)

  7. Great Christmas card! I cant believe you made one and I didnt! LOL

    I do like the 2nd one with the sentiment going across the wall, I really like how that looks.
