The "Faux Woodgrain" technique has been around for a while. To refresh your memory, you can create the look of wood by swiping inkpads across a piece of cardstock, working from lightest to darkest colour (here I started with Crushed Curry, then Crumb Cake, then Baked Brown Sugar, and finished with a dash of Soft Suede). For the final step, you usually hand-draw the joins and nails, but here I cheated and just stamped the Hardwood background stamp in Soft Suede ink. It looks quite authentic, I think.
Usually I would turn this into a masculine card, but instead I decided to go floral instead with this one.
Wow! i love this---your faux woodgrain looks totally fabulous and REAL! Thanks for sharing how you did it! DawnReplyDelete
