Faux Woodgrain Technique

Hi Stamping Friends.   Today's card is one we made in our technique class.  The technique was faux wood.  To do the technique -- on soft suede, stamp the woodgrain background stamp (optional).  Score every 1/2".  Using the direct-to-paper method, slide chocolate chip or early espresso across the paper going in the direction of the score marks.  That's it!  When the woodgrain background stamp is used, it seems to really give it a more true wood look.  The other colors are Raspberry Ripple and Very vanilla.  The ribbon is the gumball green 3/8" stitched satin ribbon.  The birds are punch in Primrose Petals sponged with basic gray.  The sentiment is from curly cute.
