Thursdays with Kim - Another Brick on the Wall

Hi girls! Another fun tutorial for you! First, you'll need a 4" by 6" white cardstock. To make a soft background I used some Shimmerz Spritz Cotton Candy.
(For Shimmerz Spritz don't forget to shake it really well before use the glimmer is in the bottom of the bottle.)
I wasn't totally satisfied so I decided to "spoutch" another color; Ruby
Now stamp an image on your paper. Don't forget to stamp the same image on a scratch paper for keeps.
At every 0.5" trace a pale line with a pencil. Then turn your image at 90 degree and trace more lines (double) to create a brick effect, it should look like this:
Now cut out on the lines. Look at the disaster!
Now the fun began... Take out the second image you've stamp, remember the one on scratch paper I asked you to do earlier. (it'll make it easier to assemble)
Now cut a 4" by 6" rectangle which will be your background. (Don't use patterned paper because it will be really difficult to see your stamped image.

Begin to assemble with the pattern of your stamp. It will be more easy! it's like a big puzzle! Try to let a little space between the rectangles. Be precise. Try to keep some clear lines.

Fix your rectangle with glue or double sided tape like this.
For the rectangle who has no pattern on; try to place them in an aesthetic way. It's not necessary to put them all on your paper. Fix the paper on your card. Embelish and enjoy! Look how cool it looks!
I hope you'll try this at home! Hugs and kisses!
