Wood Background

My card today is made possible through 


I used THIS wood background stamp to create the background of my card. For this one I inked the inside of the stamp with Vintage Photo Distress ink and then worked my way out with a gradual lighter color. So the second color was Rusty Hinge and then on the outside I used Wild Honey. I then matted the stamped cardstock onto a piece of white cardstock that I had inked with the same Wild Honey color. 

I then had this bright orange Spellbinders scalloped circle to use. I covered most of it with the Vintage Photo distress ink as with an ink blender also by Ranger. The banner on the card is a die cut from Stampin Up that I inked the edges and placed an American Crafts sentiment sticker on. The flower is by The Paper Studio, glittery center is by Recollections, brown border sticker is by Creative Memories and ribbon is by American Crafts.

Thanks for looking.
