Italian Brick Wall

Good morning.
The New Year started quietly here , just as I like it, sitting with a little bit of colouring in and crochet.
I made this card before Christmas for Lesley to take onto The Craft Channel with her and was delighted to see it on the counter displayed. This stamp makes me think of sitting in a beautiful Italian garden drinking a large coffee in the morning sunlight.

For the white base card, it was die cut with a square die and the flower stem was coloured with blue and green watercolour pens then breathed onto the stamp to activate the ink. A second square slightly smaller was cut from blue card and fixed into position. The Brick Wall stamp was stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with black powder. The colouring is done using alcohol pens and watercolour pencils. I only added a little colour to the brickwork as subtle shading because I wanted them to look as though it has been white washed. The stamped piece of card was added behind the frame and the sentiment was fixed to the top corner.

Many thanks for visiting
