Weathered Wood

Hello Everyone

A while ago, we did a clas using the Weathered Wood technique. This card was so much fun to design.
.


To achieve this technique, you simply make score marks in the base card. In this case I used Very Vanilla cardstock and scored every half inch. You then swipe inks direct from the ink pad across the paper to build up the wood effect. I used Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Chocolate Chip.

The greenery growing at the bottom is made with the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set, stamped in Garden Green and the bough at the top is from Hopeful Thoughts.
I stamped the flowers in Pacific Point using the Itty Bitty Buds stamp and punched out with the matching punch.

Let me know if you have a go at this technique - I would love to see what you create!
