New Darkroom Door Brick Wall Background Stamp

Now, I know I said that the Sunshine background was my favourite, but check out this brick wall background stamp:

Exactly what I needed in my crafting arsenal! Something to use with all the boy cards I need to make yay! 

Here it is used with one of the images from the Skater stamp set:

Isn't it the perfect grungey background for a boy themed card?

For this background, I chose some patterned paper and then covered it in a thin layer of gesso. While it was wet, I stamped the Brick Wall Background into it and left it to dry. Then I sponged some Vintage Photo Distress Ink on the edges, and stamped the word 'Skater' with Coffee Archival ink.

To complete the card, the skater image was stamped with Coffee Archival ink onto kraft cardstock, then fussy cut. I also made a second generation impression of the words 'Born to SK8' int he top right hand corner to look like faded graffiti.

Thanks for stopping by, and as always, I'm happy to answer any questions.
