Let's start at the beginning...
I was playing with the new Embossing Paste. This stuff is seriously the bomb! Easy to use, and lots of fun! Adds so much texture to your creations!
So I had this image of bricks...the Pattern Party Decorative Masks comes with 4 masks--clouds, a medallion, bricks and some kind of little diamond-shaped dots. I took the brick mask and covered it with Cajun Craze-colored embossing paste. Looked great!
I tried to get artsy; I ripped my brick wall cardstock and adhered it to my card base, but it looked too stark. So I started stamping different patterns from the Timeless Textures set around the bricks.
