Let's Paint the Town... or card with "faux" embossing

Hi there! I have a rather simple card today, but they are great to make a bunch of quick cards if you are pressed for time. Check it out...

I used "I love you sew", yet again.  This really is one of my favourites. I used another of my favourites, the "Brick wall textured impressions embossing folder" for the background. I didn't use it in tge "conventional" way, I used it as a stamp. You just add your ink directly to the embossing folder, place your paper, close it and rub. Open and there you have a fun faux texturized background. Neato eh?! 

I added a bit of stamping with the sentiment to look like graffiti on the wall with splashes of blackberry bliss and lost lagoon inks using the paint brush stroke image. I added a small linen thread bow and a few "Petite petals" for a bit more of a softer feel. I'm pleased with how easy this came together, I hope you like it. 

Thanks for stopping by, happy stamping!
