World Cardmaking Day was yesterday, October 1. Gina gave us four challenges on StampTV. This is the first one: Carved Wood technique. I am also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.
I started with a piece of ivory cardstock and scored it at 1/2 inch intervals. I dragged my Prickly Pear and Early Espresso ink pads over the cardstock and then embossed it with an embossing folder. Then I dragged my white pigment ink pad over the top, being careful not to press too hard. This showed the embossing that was pressed into the cardstock. I matted the background layer and attached it to an ivory card base.
I stamped the sentiment and the flower, cut them out with a die, matted them and used foam squares to attach them to the background.
I threaded some yarn through the button, tied a bow and adhered it with a glue dot.
I used the following supplies:
Gina K. Designs: Ivory and Honey Mustard cardstock
Painted Autumn stamp set
Prickly Pear ink
Stampin' Up! Peach Parfait, Cajun Craze, Bravo Burgundy, Early Espresso ink
Cuttlebug Paper Lace 2 set embossing folder

foam squares, button and yarn from my stash
