The writing on the wall

Oh boy!  I was so excited and thrilled to win Wendy's new Graffiti Art and coordinating brick wall stencil recently.  Not only did I use it on a chunky ATC but it will make excellent birthday cards as you can see here.
The brick wall was stamped in Slate Adirondack ink (discontinued) on reddish-brown cardstock.  The base and layer are shades of gray.

I stamped 'wish' in Snow Cap pigment ink but it didn't work like I wanted so I went over it with a white marker.   
Note to self: re-ink pad.

The longer sentiment was stamped in Jet Black Archival ink, cut apart and edged with Black Soot Distress ink.  The fella is from European Art.  I avoided inking up the 's' in the first word - she.  Instant male sentiment!  Distress markers were used to color the female version (my 16 year old niece is blonde- this is for her).

So if you like a sentiment and it doesn't quite work, try to cover up a letter or word or maybe replace a word with one from another set. 


  1. Great cards, Susan!! I love the brick wall & saying - great combo!

  2. Hah! Love it. Great twist on 'he said/she said' and I love the walls!

  3. Love these Susan!!! Perfect for either or! You are too clever to make one of each! Love it!
