Wood Grain Background using Gelatos® and PITT® Pastel Pencils
Hi everyone. It's me, Susanne, and today I'd like to share with you how I made the wood grain background for my "Love" card. Check out the video:
Here are some more close ups of the card and a description which embellishments I used:
I printed the "Love" with my printer and fuzzy cut it out. For the leafs I covered some cardstock with the Faber-Castell Chalkboard Paint and stamped on it with my white Stamper's Big Brush Pen. After I cut the leafs I embossed them with an embossing folder to add a little bit more texture.
The butterfly is embossed with black embossing powder and colored with the Gelato® Lemon and the Gelato® Pistachio. I created the yellow button with polymer clay. The rolled flowers are dabbed with some Faber-Castell Gesso.
I hope you like my technique creating a wood grain background. Have a nice day, Susanne.
