The "brick" background is a "hybrid" version of two techniques I found on SCS. Its a cross between delft tile and brick wall. Instead of cutting out each brick, I just scored them, and went over the score lines with a white gel pen to look like mortar. This is representative of my own house, red brick, black shutters, white azaleas. Over the next few days, I'll probably post other versions of this card, since I'm drawing inspiration from all the azaleas blooming in the neighborhood right now. I thought I'd start with my own and work around the street!
