I have been playing in techniques recently. This technique is called Faux Burned Wood and I chose to use a rose for this card.
I used the stamp set, Rose Bouquet from Gina K Designs, dated 2017. The woodgrained texture is from the SU embossing folder called Pinewood Planks, very retired. Basically to complete this technique, I used my MISTI and a dark ink stamping the image several times to make it as dark as I could. I used Dark Chocolate from GKD. Then while the ink is still wet, take a water brush or paint brush and drag it across the image. This makes the outline a bit fuzzy and moves the ink across the paper. I used Ranger Watercolor Cardstock to stamp and move the ink on.
Here is the You Tube video I watched to learn this technique: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIeWFPqWfTU&list=WL&index=21
I have spent the last six month’s being on the design team with Split Coast Stampers. I enjoyed the honor and learned quite a bit. My last cards will be posted on August 15. Thanks for reading and seeing what I am creating. If you try this technique, I would love to see it. I enjoyed learning something new and being able to share.
