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. 

Come see how I made this window card with brick background.

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.  I love making window cards and so far I have 102 of them in my Window Cards category.  Feel free to check them out if you would like more window inspiration.  You can also find tons of window card inspiration on Pinterest.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
