Just Add Ink had a sketch challenge that I just loved (42). I decided to use a set from Waltzing Mouse that I hadn’t inked up yet. I love the weave pattern image in this set and had to use it. I pretty much followed the sketch. For the the accent I decided to use the bird image from the set.
I wanted to give the wood of the tree trunk a wood grain look, so before stamping I used PTI’s Wood Grain background set to pull off ink. The end result looks more distressed than wood grain. I don’t mind it for this card, but next time I want to see wood grain I’ll have to come up with a different way.
