Lori has a great background tutorial for us today, and you can find it HERE! I think I got the same look Lori did, but I cheated...! (shhh!!) I didn't have the same supplies she used, so I played around with what I have here. I embossed a piece of glossy cardstock with a woodgrain folder from Darice, then used Versamark ink and clear embossing powder on the raised areas. Instead of using alcohol ink, I covered the panel using Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink, then spritzed the panel with rubbing alcohol and wiped the panel with a rag. The alcohol lifted the ink from the areas where there's embossing powder, and mottled the ink where it hit the glossy cardstock surface. I think it's a fun background for my little woodsy scene!
The sentiment is from one of my clear sets, Warm Fuzzies. All the dies are from Impression Obsession (Deer Trio, Sun & Moon, Sm. Grass Border, Grass Border, Fir Tree Border)

This is super creative and Ilove the dies and design. Thanks for the deets on your technique! This is an awesome masculine card...an area of our craft that I am really challenged in. A fav for sure and pinned as well!
