A brick wall is a fabulous blank canvas for almost any theme which is why I opted for the Brick Wall. I could have gone all pinks and floral on a nice grey background with lots of green. But I didn’t! Instead I decided to go with a cool boys cards.
I started by copying and pasting the Brick Wall image several times in a Word Document until I had an A4 page full of bricks. I then proceeded to cut out a piece of wall to fit my 6 x 6 card. I coloured the wall using Jim Holtz Distress Ink – Pumice Stone making sure I did it rough and uneven and leaving a few places almost white. I also cut out a few individual bricks and coloured these in Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.
The boy image and sentiments are from Polkadoodles. They were coloured using ZIG real brush pens.
I chose a white 6 x 6 inch card which got a black mat which I stuck my Brick Wall to. I added the boy charactar and the sentiments before placing the small individual tiles around the card mounted on foam pads to add dimension. Fairly quick card with enough grunge to keep any young boy happy!
