WWC175 - Marsha's Masuline Anything Goes Challenge

http://watercoolerchallenges.blogspot.com/
This week's challenge theme, hosted by Marsha, is a theme I still struggle with. As do some of you.
For some reason, I was thinking about graffiti and thought I would see where that went, since I had no plan. Here's what happened.
First, I needed a brick wall. Out came the Brick Wall embossing folder and a piece of Gray Granite cardstock.  wanted to emphasize the grout lines, so I applied Silver Embossing Paste with the tip of a skewer between each brick.

When that dried, I stenciled some "graffiti" using some blue acrylic paint. Some sponging with Gray Granite ink added to the grunge look.

For a pop of colour, I diecut the bench from Pretty Park Framelits from retired DSP. Then, the bench needed that cute dog from Sitting Pretty. He is stamped with Gray Granite and Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

The tops of the potted plant in the Sitting Pretty stamp set, in Call Me Clover, make the foliage under the bench.

To finish it off, I stamped the banner and the word 'chill' from Pick A Pennant, with Pineapple Punch and Gray Granite.
