I've been admiring the wood backgrounds that look like boards or barn siding, so I came up with my own.
Using the woodgrain background stamp I already have, I stamped it on white with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. I cut the panel to 4 x 5 1/4" and used my ScorPal to make "boards" 1" wide. After making the grooves, I used a ruler and gray marker to color them. Then I drew lines across at varying intervals.
This will make a nice masculine card for our pastor to use.
