Todays Friday Mashup challenge is brought to us by Tara. She wants us to give the brick wall technique a try, and to also use the sketch she provided!
I had never done or heard of this technique, so I looked it up on Splitcoaststampers. You can find it HERE. It definitely gives a neat effect but I cant lie, I found the work a bit tedious and since I have some fine motor skill issues, handling the small sections you cut out was a bit of a problem for me. BUT at least I can say I tried the technique and conquered it, so thank you Tara for the challenge!
I used the sketch also and kept it very simple, only adding some Gingham Garden DSP across the bottom and some Daffodil Delight ribbon across the middle. The bright colors are perfect for a summer birthday, so I added a birthday sentiment at the bottom!
Make sure you head over to The Friday Mashup to see what the rest of the design came up with for this technique and sketch!
