Inspired Stamps Nature Card

Hello and welcome here! This week the Inspired Stamps DT are sharing projects that include nature and a verse. I try to think up something different so that you aren't bored with me showing you the same thing over and over, and hopefully you're inspired to look at your stamps in a new way. Well I think I have a special treat for you today, I must say I even impressed myself, lol.

I started in my mind with sponged clouds for a sky, and patterned paper for grass. I wanted to do something different and as I was looking at the Label Maker Alphabet stamp set I envisioned a brick wall. Yep, I don't have a clue how my brain does it, it even surprises me sometimes too. The brick wall is made up of 4 of the different frames from the stamp set.

Card Size: 5" x 5"

I stamped the 'bricks' with black ink, and coloured them with Copics W1, W3, and E40. They are outlined with W5. I coloured each block making sure NOT to blend it very well. I then went over it lightly with the Colorless Blender, and that makes is look like stone. The grout in between is coloured with E42.
