I'm sharing a little tutorial on how to create "wood planks". This is the same technique I used on the doghouse mini I shared a while back. So here we go with a technique on how to get a great woodgrain look. Woodgrain papers are really hot right now, but you can create your own. All you need is some strips of kraft paper and sepia or brown ink. I cut my strips at 5/8".
Once all my strips were stamped I started to glue them down in a random pattern on a circle of card stock.
When finished I trimmed the edges.Float My Boat set from Torico.
Like I said, I used this same technique on the Doggie Mini Album I made using the Puppy Love set and it can be used with lots of other great There She Goes sets. Hope you'll give it a try.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
