Lovely Cousins

One of the things I really wanted to use this month was the stamp I received from Heartfelt Creations.  It's called Chateau Gateway, and it's a lovely gate with a brick archway surrounding it.  You can see it HERE.  Anyway, rather then use the entire image, I decided to use the wonderfully detailed brick pattern to create a textural background for my layout.  Here are a few photos of that process:
  I used Colorbox Dye Ink to stamp small sections of the stamp, then stamped them around in various spots on the background of my page.

And here is the layout:

The effect really brought the layout together!  Some Authentique papers and Want2Scrap embellishments finished off the page.  Thanks for coming by to take a peek!
