Good Morning. Faux finishes have always intrigued me so the chance to play with inks and create a faux barnboard was right up my alley. It all started when I saw this wonderfully done CARD. Thanks Shirley-Bee for inspiring me!!! Then Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast forced me, I just had to make a card based on the photo below!
So, here is what I did to make the faux barnboard.
I masked off the center area of my card front then scored around the edges with my ScorPal. I like the way it framed out the area to be stamped. Next, I scored the horizontal lines to represent the boards. Then, I simply swiped my Weathered Wood and Anique Linen Distress ink pads over the scored area until I was happy with the look. Then I inked up the branch with Memento markers, sprayed with water then stamped over the scored area. Lastly, I added the sentiment from Daisy Bucket.
Love how this turned out and will certainly be giving this another go.
I am adding my card to these challenges:
CAS-ual Fridays- SHADES of GRAY
Little Red Wagon- YEARNING for SPRING
Thanks so much for stopping by to take a look.
Supplies: stamps- Rubbernecker, Daisy Bucket/ Distress ink/ Memento markers/ Scor-Pal
