Another brick in the wall


Hiya, I tried to make a very male one layer card. I got the idea whilst sitting at the bus home from work. There's a rather dull and dark bus stop underground with stone walls and graffiti.

Challenges:
Less Is More: Splatters
Simon Says Monday Challenge: In the middle (my friends new job is in the middle of his life at the moment)


Materials used:
Itsy Bitsy brick wall image stamped with Water Can Archival ink.
Vilda stamps splatter image stamped with Liquitex acrylic paints
Exchangeable alphabet stamps, stamped with black Archival ink.
Platinum Stickles for shadow, white Sakura pen to lift the "O", it was too dense.

Thank you for visiting!

Love and hugs

Maarit
