Brick wall (posted by Claire)

Good morning and Happy New Year! Here's to another year of fun, creativity and stamping with Chocolate Baroque. It's  Claire here with a card made using one of this month's beautiful new garden stamps, this one is called Brick Wall and features a lovely shuttered window and a pretty tree too. You may have seen this stamp before as it was featured on The Craft Channel recently. 

I made my background using distress inks in shadeds of green and brown and then used a brick stencil and texure paste over the top. I stamped the image and coloured it with pencils, adding some flowers using a little silhouette flower stamp. I tore the coloured image out and distressed the edges with a little Gathered Twigs distress ink before layering it up over some kraft card. 

I've popped a scrap of hessian under the image and added a button topped with an old brass button to finish off. 
I'm sure my teamies beautiful projects are going to inspire you again this month so don't forget to pop back as there is lots of inspiration on its way!

Thanks for visiting today
