One image, 3 cards.

An  additional  post  following  a post I wrote yesterday  here and over at  Stamps and Stencils,
where I re-visited the technique of triple embossing.

At the end of the post  I showed  3 cards using the same Banksy image from Bee Crafty,    This  is to show you some of the details of  how they were made.

The Brickwall layer was made using an embossing folder [Crafters Companion]  Kraft card and Distress inks. Shade with a blending tool then, rub the whole piece,  with the surface of the ink pad, more pressure adds more colour.

On to the fun bit, I made my own mask for the image and swipped  the surface all over with distress stain.

A bit of texture next, with stencil and grunge paste.

More colouring with  some diluted white acrylic. A footstep stamp, then a rub over with White Fire Treasure Gold. Adding one of my triple embossed word plates

For this one I used a Brick stencil  with weathered Wood distress ink,  on the background and some stamping.

I used my home made mask of the image on this  third one. Sprinkled  the card with Brusho Powder and lightly sprayed with water. When it dried out I removed the mask and was able to stamp the image in the in the space. Yes, some of the colour had spread, but I thought it looked okay to use. A little stamping to give the effect of a wall.

The background stamps used were all unmounted and I'm afraid I cannot  for sure name the maker.

Thank you for taking time  to stop by, this was quite a long post. for me.
I do appreciate the comments you leave me.
