Faux Block Wall Stamping Technique

Faux Block Wall Technique

Are you ready for a stamping challenge?  We all have a stamping style that we prefer.  My challenge for you  today is to step out of your creative comfort zone.  For instance..............

Andrew & Melissa

to those who prefer the Clean and Crisp Style the vintage distressed style congers up images such as the picture above, dirty and grungy.

But to others sponging, tearing and distressing go hand in hand with stamping.  In fact, to stamp without a sponge in hand would be like the age old fable "The Emperor has No Clothes.

 Just a side note, (I just know that someone is going to ask) the charming, fun-loving couple is my son and daughter-in-law, Andrew & Melissa.

Faux Block Walls

You may have guessed by now that my style is clean and crisp, so I have chosen to explore the faux Block wall technique.  Years ago I painted these faux block walls in my son's room. Today these walls are my inspiration for a stamping technique.
