StampTV Woodgrain Challenge/Technique

Ok - here is the card I worked on last night. It isn't the best - happens when you're getting tired, but determined to finish!! :) Over on StampTV, Gina did a video on the woodgrain technique. Then posted a challenge to make a card using this technique. So, I decided now was the time to do it! BTW - if you haven't checked out StampTV - you really need to!! I LOVE it!!

A bit about the card. I started with a piece of Baroque Burgundy card stock (retired SU). I then used the Vanilla Craft pad and swiped it down the card stock. Then I took Palette Burnt Umber pad and swiped it directly over top of the Vanilla. To see how it is done -check out the video...StampTV Woodgrain. I colored the flower in with SU markers. Sponged the edges of the main image. My sentiment is stamped in Vanilla (and stamped crooked :). I wanted to add more, but wasn't sure what to add. Plus my eyes were getting heavy. :D

Stamps: Elegant Flowers part of the StampTV stamp kit (
GinaK Designs - StampTV)
CS: GP White, Baroque Burgundy (SU retired), Mellow Moss
Ink: Vanilla Craft, Palette Burnt Umber
Other: SU Markers (Bravo Burgundy, Mellow Moss, Summer Sun), Stampin' Dimensionals, Striped Moss Ribbon (from my stash), Stamping Sponge

You won't believe this, but I have yet ANOTHER card to post!! It involves yet another challenge (sketch). Told ya - I love the sketches and what a better way to keep stamping when half the 'guesswork' is done for you.
