EWV - challenge 5

Wednesday saw the launch of the latest challenge over on the Everything Wendy Vecchi yahoo group, hosted by uber-talented  Lori.
So I made a card today using prompts of a scroll (stamp or other form equally acceptable) and chipboard letters, & at least one Wendy stamp - based on Wendy's art from page 18 of her first book.  I did have a look at the book first just to remind myself of the original - but this is nothing like the original! I had loads of fun doing this.

I used another of the new stencil templates that I got the other day - love this brick one! Makes me think of Pink Floyd, & Another Brick in the Wall, but that's for another day!! I used aged mahogany, fired brick and brushed corduroy for the "wall" and then made some grunge flowers (all stamps are by Wendy) and one of her scrolly/flourish stamps. The letters are painted with pumpkin eco green paint, the flowers distress inked and sprayed with shimmery perfect pearl sprays.

Have a good evening - it's bedtime for me, though I am finding it hard to stop watching the news coverage of the dreadful Japan earthquake/tsunami - hope it doesn't spread as far as they fear it is going to - stay safe, everyone!

ooh that brick template is fabulous, really love the effect you've achieved. Great flower as well. Terrific piece Helen.
Its dreadful for the poor people of Japan, I hope they get that nuclear plant problem under control as radiation leaks of that proportion are unthinkable. Take care and have a great weekend. Annette x
