I love wood grain....if you've ever been in my gallery you'll find lots! I went with a faux wood bg piece made using a similar technique to the one in the tutorial here http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/re...ials/fauxwood/ with a More Mustard base with the 4 browns layered and some added marks with an Espresso marker. I had seen this fabulous card by Vicki B. http://itsastampthing-vicki.blogspot...challenge.html. I loved the warmth and age on her beautiful image panel. I used Upsy Daisy and after inking with More Mustard I used Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Always Artichoke markers to add details to the flowers. I stamped onto Vanilla cs then added the French script and spatter in Early Espresso. I sponged More Mustard, Cajun Craze, and Crumb Cake onto the image. For the sentiment I stamped the Weathered bg in Chocolate Chip onto Vanilla cs I embossed the Scripture verse by inking with Versamark then Early Espresso and embossing with clear EP. I added some sponging on the edges. Instead of the cool seam binding bow on Vicki's card I added some distressed twine. *The wood I placed the card on for the picture is a sample of the laminate flooring we're ordering for our new kitchen in the parsonage we live in!!!
