Faux wood: A Drunken Stampers Challenge

WWDSD? Create his or her own, of course! Wood, that is! Faux wood!

Are you suddenly imagining a bunch of Hillbillies ... concrete swimming pool ... Beverly Hills ... ... now you know how much time I spend tracking back 'round to the point in my own brain.

Anyhow, reel in your own wandering thoughts and join us for the faux wood challenge at Drunken Stampers!

My own awesome wood-like surface is courtesy an Alterations Texture Fade folder on, believe it or not, yellow card stock.

That's right ... my own tree has a yellow interior ... and about five layers of just-darker-than-the-previous, brown-toned distress inks. Neat, huh?

Mother Nature is very inspiring!

She even brought me the idea of the falling leaf cut from a metal beverage can, glopped with citrus alcohol ink and dangling from a wee bit of Twinery twine!

Yes sir! Our Mother Nature, she's a creative and amazing woman!

Show us what your own faux wood looks like before midnight Friday, March 18. After that Mother Nature will be too busy with tulips and daffodils to give us any help!

  1. Wow! Fabulous faux wood! Love the WWDSD!!! lol! And your metal leaf is the perfect touch! :) {wishin' I had one of them new-fangled embossin' machines - wonder how "creative" I can get to make faux wood without one - maybe I need a few drinks or some toxic fumes to help spark my imagination}

  4. So loving your faux wood and faux leaf easal card! Using the yellow is much more realistic. Now I have to remember that one! The sad thing is that I don't write down anything I do and when you go back and look at something, you kind of wonder what colors you used. I need to be better with that! Enjoy the evening!
