Wanted – Faux Wood Grain

I have always loved the wood grain look.  The only stamp set I owned that would go good with the wood grain look was “Wanted.” We received this stamp set at the 2007 Stampin’ Up! convention. Here is the card I created! Hope you like it! I took my More Mustard, Really Rust, and Chocolate Chip stamp pads and used the “Direct to Paper” technique. I rubbed these three stamp pads on More Mustard cardstock using a straight motion. Then I took my Whisper White Craft Stamp Pad and again using a straight motion rubbed again. My white craft pad did get a little dirty. I also used my Black Journaler to make straight lines for the panels. I drew my lines about 1” apart. I also used the Faux Cracked Glass technique on the horses. Notice how he is running so fast he two shadows. This was a fun card to make!
