Selma Stevenson's "Blast from the Past" challenge over on STV incorporates these tutorials. I love this because there are so many techniques I may have done only once...or still havent tried them! This week's challenge was to make your own "wood grain" background...don't know why I havent practiced this ....can always use wood backgrounds - especially on those "man" cards. This is a technique I'm going to keep working on - I did mine below going step-by-step according to Gina's toot! except I did smaller scores - wish I had listened and done same measurements she provided....
you can see I had trouble with the horizontal scores! I colored the basket to try and match the wood panel.
The flowers were colored and then Flower Soft was added. Image is raised on card.
If you go over to this challenge on STV - you will see Selma's and Geri's cards, both have done perfect wood panels! I'm going to keep working and nail this technique!
Thanks for stoppin by,
Have a wonderful blessed day!
