I've been wanting to make a gel card, since I don't have the classic stamps that go with this tehnique, here is what I came up with . The faces being made with Fun Filled set was truly inspired by scs's. I used Terrific Tulips for the guy's hair. Next time I will use brads for the nailheads on the hot tub.

Glad you are enjoying this card!
First time I saw a wood grain card was one that Gala Lutz had made and was called Equestrian Dream; I emailed her and she said this is how she did it "The woodgrain technique is done with ink refills. You choose a few colors, put several drops of each (separately) on a palette, dip a toothbrush into the ink and then brush onto the card stock. Repeat with each color. Then you draw the lines and details to make the effect of boards." I think my upline Heather Fritzke does it this way too. So I did this on a whole sheet of Naturals ivory cardstock then cut out what I needed, just used a coluzzle oval template to help with the oval and freehanded the rest of the hot tub. I didn't have any people stamps, so I was happy I'd seen some faces made with Fun Filled on this website, just changed the hairdoos. Great for a comical card.
I gave this card to my husband for our 24th anniversary.
