Inspired by Sue

Hi folks here is my contribution to this weeks challenge at Paperartsy.  Sue Carrington is the guest designer this week. 

I started with a piece of mountboard, added texture paste through a brick stencil and added more texture with my pallete knive, and as I dont have Taupe Fresco Paint I mixed (very brave) cheesecake and french roast to give me a taupe colour - painted all over and then added a bit more french roast to highlight the bricks. Bumped through a stencil with claret and butternut and used Lin Browns 01and 02 stamps on to spare card using, claret and butternut for the flowers and hyde park and limelight for the leaves, a bit of coloured wax to add dimension, Treasure Gold is on my wish list along with more paints, so hopefully will have these soon.

A few little buttons to add more texture and I was done!!   Hope you like, thanks for looking.
