" Framed" on the brick wall...

I enjoyed the construction(literally) of this project "brick by brick" cos the foundation for this is a liquor bottle carton! Dont believe me???...have a look at this!!!


The color scheme orange and black just nailed it for me to do this absolute vintage frame on a brick wall!

The flowers are all handmade with cheery Lynn die,Shasta Daisy(B310) and can you see the sweet l'le oranges from the cheery Lynn olive branches(B147)!!!
Hope you can see the texture on the bricks. Here is a brief on the making...i applied granite finish texture paste on a piece of cardstock and painted it orange. once it was dry cut them to small pieces and distressed the edges with black soot and voila..my handcut bricks were ready to be laid on the wall!


After that it was easy to finish the rest of the project.There are 3 layers excluding the base of the carton!!! First the brown cardstock, then the white CS on which the bricks are laid and then the PP. The flowers and leaves on the left side are all on the edge! The other side of the carton is still empty...let's see what i manage to do there!

Hope you all liked this one...Do let me know.
Thanks for stopping by...
