Revisiting a technique


Few years back when I started craft blogging I religiously followed a Challenge blog “Technique Time Tuesday” run by Mynette Kitchen. Each challenge introduced me to a new technique and being a newbie, it benefited me immensely .One of the technique I learned was “Brick wall technique/Brick tile technique”, which I have used for today’s card. My previous card with this technique can be found here .


I also followed the layout of this wonderful card designed by Julie Beech for STAMPlorations. My initial plan of no line coloring went astray as I choose dark color for stamping the sunflowers. That led to even more dark colors for shadows and outlines.


After I was done with water coloring with distress inks and the panel was dry I flipped it and cut into squares, inked the edges and glued them on another panel. It was like solving a jigsaw puzzle!


Finished off the card with a gold embossed sentiment on vellum and supporting one on a strip of cardstock.


Supplies used:
Stamps-  Sketched Sunflower (STAMPlorations), Wising you with Eveline T Designs(Winnie& Walter)
Inks :Mustard seeds, scattered straw, wild honey Distress Inks,Jet black Archival Ink,Versamark watermark ink,
Rangers Gold embossing Powder

  9. This is such a stunning card, Pooja! Love the Brick wall technique! One small complaint is that I can't see all the sunflowers through the vellum - the ones that are exposed are looking just too beautiful and I would have totally loved to look at those others too! :)
