MC Aug/16 - Brick Wall - Just Living Is Not Enough
My turn on the Quietfire Creations Blog today and must admit I was a little stumped as to what direction to go in. I'm in a little bit of a slump again... Nothing was inspiring me. I picked up this stencil (Crafter's Workshop "Tuscan Wall") the other day and decided to use it. I love the peek a boo kind of image it had of the brick wall. The card is a very simple one layer card, but I think it turned out ok. Didn't do anything on the inside yet... Those little butterflies all over the wall make me smile - which is good. I very, very rarely analyze my work, but I think the brick wall symbolizes my feeling like hitting a brick wall. Sorry for rambling on...

Anyway you can see all the details and descriptions by clicking on any card image. Enjoy or clicking HERE to go to my website.

I've run into that wall quite a few times and it sure makes things tough when you're doing design team work. This turned out pretty, Yogi. Love the combination of stamps, dies, and embossing. Those itty bitty butterflies are so cute!

Love the texture you created on this! The CAS card has so much color and I love the way you let sentiment take center stage. Keep your chin up! We all hit that wall, but this is absolutely gorgeous.
