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.

Such a pretty woodgrain background! Love the coloring on the die cut bird!

I will definitely have to remember this. The rustic boards are such a fabulous look behind the softly colored bird.
