Just Another Brick In The Wall

I have an Urban/Grungy Valentine card for you today. I've been seeing so many cool projects with brick backgrounds, and wanted to give it a try. I had the Tim Holtz brick embossing folder, so that's where I started. I painted one side of the folder with Tickled Pink paint from Creative Inspirations. I ran a piece of Echo Park paper (with text graphics) through the folder - to give a graffiti look. Next, I rubbed Pumice Stone Distess ink over the wall, to tone it down a bit and highlight the details. I used stamps from Unity to finish out my city card.

Here's a picture of the brick wall before it was added to the card, so you can see the textures.

Have a great week!
