Today I’m sharing a window card with brick background that I made using the new Rubbernecker Stamps Brick Wall Stencil paired with the Window 4 Pane, Mixable Flower Stack , Large Ivy and Tiny Flower Buds. This is my first attempt using one of the large stencils that Rubbernecker recently released. I had lots of fun applying ink with the Life Changing Blender Brushes and Sofft Mini Applicators and trying to create a variety of colors on the bricks.
The Stenciled Brick Background
- Secure the stencil over a piece of white cardstock using Eclipse masking tape.
- Use the blender brush to apply a light layer of Antique Linen ink over the whole stencil.
- Next apply Vintage Photo ink using the blender brush to create a deeper brown to the bricks. Note: Applying the lighter shade of Antique Linen ink first creates moisture on the cardstock and makes it easier to blend in the darker colors.
- Apply Rusty Hinge and Gathered Twigs inks to the bricks using mini applicators to create the variation in brick colors.
- Remove mask and apply a light layer of Antique Linen ink over all the mortar lines.
- Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the brick layer and attach to the card base.
The Window and Flowers
- Use cream cardstock to cut the window and flower box.
- Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the window and window box and attach to the card base.
- Cut the flowers using yellow cardstock and the flower centers using brown cardstock.
- Apply Rusty Hinge ink to the flowers using a mini applicator.
- Form the flowers using a stylus and molding pad and attach the layers together using glossy accents.
- Attach the tiny brown flowers to the center of each flower using glossy accents.
- Cut the ivy using green cardstock and attach the sections to the window using glossy accents.
- Apply glossy accents to the flowers and attach them to the ivy and window.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my window card with brick background. I wish that I had left the flowers a brighter yellow as I think they would have shown up better against the dark bricks.
