Just a quick rundown on the technique:
- Take a piece of background card stock (Gina suggested More Mustard from SU) and run a Vanilla pigment ink pad across the front of the piece. (I suggest wearing rubber gloves unless you want inky fingers!).
- I let dry and then did the same over the top of the vanilla with chocolate chip dye ink. (I forgot the dye ink part and used my Chocolate Chip Craft ink.
- When inks are dried draw lines for the panels. I also added dots for the nails or pegs.
- Voila a background that looks like wood paneling or flooring.
So now I have a guy birthday card when needed. There are lots of other cards over at StampTV in their photo gallery. To see them search with STVTC4. People got very creative using colors other than brown. They are worth checking out.
