I started with a Tim Holtz embossing folder (Brick Wall) and painted it with gesso. I then added my cardstock (a pale grey My Mind's Eye solid patterned paper) and embossed. It was an interesting effect, making the already-weathered brick wall look even more aged. I added some vellum triangles and a Rustic Wreath die cut to the background for interest, and then popped up my Doodlie-Do focal point.
