Happy Saturday. This morning, I am playing along with the challenge at Splitcoast inspired from the site Sur La Table and these lovely candlesticks.
As most of you know, I love making my own background papers and this one was really fun to make. There is a tutorial on Splitcoast called Faux Barnboard. I did a modified version of that technique. I also added some scoring lines to make it look more authentic. When it was all dry, it was too light for me so I took my Gathered Twigs Distress ink pad and rubbed it over the front. To help the Distress ink stick over the acrylic paint, I embossed it with clear embossing powder. It gave it a wonderful crackled appearance. I was so pleased with how it turned out that I want to try making an even simpler version.
Kept it super simple by just adding this fantastic die-cut from Penny Black called SNOW WISHES.
Also adding my card to these challenges:
