Texture and Wood

Just Us Girls #559-Photo Week

Decided to have a go at making a wood look panel and I followed a link provided by Angie just to refresh my memory of what to do. I scored at 1/2″ increments and used weathered wood distress ink for mine. In retrospect perhaps it would have been better in a brown rather than the gray, but I used it anyway. I was intrigued by the clock on the photo, but don’t have any clock stamps (the ones I ordered are stuck in Blaine). I do have a Sissix folder called pocket clocks so I used this folder on a piece of the not so great background piece I tried to make. After cutting it down I glued it on top of the wood panel. Instead of doing flowers I thought one of the leaf stamps from a SSS set would look nice so I stamped it with versamark and heat set with Rose Gold powder and then die cut it. The sparkly bits are from some stuff I’ve had sitting around for a long time and forget to use. Sentiment is from the same set and on the inside it says Be Kind.

  1. Johanna, I tend to like natural wood, which is what the brown would look more like, but I have a friend that loves gray and just did a gray painted wooden coatrack. Your panel reminds me of that, and it’s beautiful! Your “not so great background piece” is gorgeous with the embossed clocks. It reminds me of old pocket watches and clocks with their beautiful antiqued metal. This is a great card and your sentiment is wonderful.

  2. Great card Johanna. Perfect job on your wood graining and I like the “not so great” background piece (looks great to me). Your gray wood grain piece is like the flooring hubby dear is installing in our bedroom
