Hi Ladies, thanks for all the wonderful comments. As I said in my description, I used saran wrap. After wadding some up and putting a rubberband around the top to make a handle/knob, I first dabbed it in creamy caramel ink. Then, I put in onto the US Vanilla cardstock and dragged it across for about three inches. Next I inked it up again and repeated until reaching the endof my cardstock. The nest color of in was close to cocoa and I did the same steps. The last ink color was baroque burgandy, but I did't use very much of this ink as I wanted just a small amount of burgandy color on my "wood". You need to practice dragging the inked up saran wrap to see just how much pressure you'll need to apply to the cardstock. After I achieved the look I wanted, I cut it into 1/2" strips and went around all the edges with the brush end of the chocolate chip marker. What looks like nails is where I used the fine tip of the chocolate chip marker and just made a dot. Hope this helps.
