Weathered Woodgrain

Hi, I inked up another stamp that I had to have, but hadn't used yet!

I'm going to try a few cards with this stamp as I think it's going to be very versatile!

I stamped the bg in black Versafine and clear embossed. Then I distressed 
with weathered wood and broken china inks. The embossing has created a nice scratchy texture IRL!

I'm going to enter the challenge at Simon Says Stamp & Show  where the theme is to create a project using a background stamp.

Materials used: Darkroom Door woodgrain and Penny Black Social Butterfly stamps; Distress inks; Tombows; Versafine ink and clear embossing powder; stickles on butterfly body; sentiment sticker, brads and cardstock from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)


  1. That bg is so realistic - verry nice butterfly too... Mxx

  2. Loving the woodgrain background, thought it was washi tape at first but a stamp you say.. might have to add that to my need list!
