TLC256 ~Brick Wall~ (01/18/10)
Hello, friends!

Well, it seems like a few had issues with last week’s challenge. Not too many takers! Let’s see if we can attract a few more with this fun technique!

Our very own challenge chasing sister Biggan (Birgit) recently wrote a cool tutorial that is here in the resourses section on SCS. She even did a video! Thanks so much, Birgit!

This one is pretty cut and dried. No special supplies needed.

I will say that I had a little difficulty, at first, lining my pieces up straight. I finally cut a piece of cardstock to 2/3rds the size of my image and lined it with sticky tape. Then I used the bottom edge of the cardstock to line up my pieces straight. But, to be honest, I was blurry eyed when I was doing it anyway, so it was probably just me!

Please remember to use keyword TLC256 (no spaces) when uploading.

You can find my sample here:

~ Love Means No Walls ~

You can find the entire TLC256 gallery HERE.

If you have any questions or issues uploading, please do not hesitate to post your question here or send me a PM!

Have fun, girls!

Good Morning! Fun to see the challenge "Brick wall"! I must correct you Holly (Toy)..it was Beate who did the video!! I don´t want you to listen to my bad English :D....
Here´s mine;

Ooo! I wanted to do this technique for sometime now. Been going throught he tutorial and the video. I am going to give it a go now.

Cook22 01-17-2010 10:55 PM

I felt bad about missing last week, Holly. But we don't have those sort of concentrated powders here, so I would have been experimenting with essential oils. And as that was the day we had no water, and it took way too long after work to discover that the council had cut the supply and it wasn't maybe a burst pipe - well, creative isn't what I was feeling. I never even went up to my attic till after dinner.
But I am off work today, and as you've posted early, maybe I will even do this before I do all the weekly chores.

Wonderful technique, Holly. Here's what I came up with:

Doh! Sorry, Birgit! I didn't actually watch the tutorial as your step by step was so great. But, our little miss Beate has quite the cute accent, too! ;)

Thanks again!

Thanks for the challenge for Monday. I have the day off of work, so I decided to give it a try.
Here is my card:

Thanks, Holly for another challenging challenge! : ) This one was for me....I'm not a patient cardmaker. Coloring is the most time I spend on anything, so this one took me awhile. Don't feel discouraged if every week hoards don't play....those of us that do truly enjoy it. Others may not have the supplies on hand and/or the time(I find most TLC do take more time for me than the other challenges). You're doing GREAT!!

When I saw Birgit's card several weeks ago, I thought that was a pretty cool technique. I'm glad you picked it for today's technique challenge, Holly. As I'm off from work for MLK Day, I was able to do two cards for the challenge.

Oh I made 2 of these for christmas themes! I would love to make another non christmas. GREAT challenge. And I also did participate in last week even though I just uploaded yesterday... and I was glad to be reminded of the Kool Aid Kaper... I will be back but I am going out of town for 3 days so don't expect an upload until Saturday at the earliest! Doesn't mean I'm not playing!!!

adctd2stamping 01-19-2010 07:29 AM

This is just what the contractor ordered.

However, if you didn't go see Chupa's---go now. I love her's!

fan club member, but the side calls me a guest go figure cuz it gives me a title when you see my posts.
