Faux Woodgrain….

meets Field Flowers.
This is the 2nd card we created in our Technique Class last Sunday.  Yep, the colours are very bright but I wanted to createa female’s card using this fantiastic Technique – Faux Woodgrain or Faux Wood….
I had started this card a couple of weeks ago, but has I was finishing it a couple of days prior to the class, my head went in a different direction to what I had started out with.
To do our frame, I used exactly the same ink colours as can be seen on our first card for this class.
I think adding the Melon Mambo & Whisper White to the card gave the card a truely femine touch.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Faux Wood…

Envelope & Inside…

I love how easy this card come together.  The technique is fantastic & very easy to complete.  Makes for a great male card – we all have trouble with creating them sometimes.

This will be one of the cards we are going to create in our next technique class – details below – “Faux Wood“…..

I’ve used colours that are not normally used in the everyday wood you see around the place, as I wanted to try someting different & to see if I could create a completely different look.  To lift the colours a little, I decided to add a little bit of Real Red.  I’m glad I did, as it brough the whole card alive, including the background.

I want the card to be for a male, but instead of for the traditional stamps, eg cars, trees, etc, I thought “why not a Rosette?”  Who says these can’t be for the males?  I’m really happy with the final result, but would love to hear what you think.
