Faux Watercoloring - Bricked Backgroud

Hi All,

Quickly sharing another card I made as a homework at OCC - Stretch Your Stamps. I used the same water coloring on reverse background technique but this time created a bricked background instead of tiled one.

Have a look :

Here is the watercolor paper before I started creating bricks out of it. Brick size is 1.25 x .5 inches. After cutting out, I distressed each brick piece with Frayed Burlap distress ink. It was quite difficult to keep all the pieces of paper together so keep intact the stamp design. It was like a jigsaw puzzle! :D

Here is the list of supplies I used :

1. Cardstock : Neenah Solar white 110 lbs
2. Stamps : Justrite Cling Background - Rose Garden, Paper Smooches Bold Buzzwords
3. Distress Inks, Prima Flowers and Kaisercraft Rhinestone crystals
Have a great day!
