For this week's teapot challenge were to bring something we could throw at old Mr. Potter's nephew from "It's a Wonderful Life". Well searched my stash of stamps and nothing seemed to work very well, so I decided to use a brick wall with sunflowers. This is an old brick wall, so of course there are old crumbled bricks laying around in the grass where the sunflowers grow wild in between. I sponged some Early Espresso ink on the edges and ever so slightly on top to give it that old brick feel. An old brick bopping the Potter nephew on the noggin might knock some sense into him, hopefully!! The brick wall is embossed with Tim Holtz emboss folder. The sunflowers and grass are dies from MFT. And the stem is a sizzex die. Popped those sunflowers up so they could catch the sun. TFL!!
