On Stamp TV Sep. 18th, Gina K demonstrated a technique to make a background that looks like weathered barn wood. I really loved it so I had to copy it. I only changed the greeting. You can see the video here Autumn Forest with Woodgrain Barn Wood. It is so simple and makes such a great background. The technique for the trees is also a neat trick. My one caution is when using the colorless blender pen don't and I mean don't get too close to the edge. The color will bleed outside the lines and it doesn't look pretty. Please don't ask me how I know this.
It is a technique I plan to use again.
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
P.S. I've been busy making cards and cleaning up outside so that's why I haven't posted lately.
