Stampin’Up!’s Wood Textures DSP is pretty, but often times I am looking for more dimension than the paper alone provides. So, here is how I tackle that in the descriptions and photos below.
Using a narrow black marker and white gel pen, I added more lines vertical to those already on the DSP. Then add horizontal lines to create planks. First, add the lines in black, then offset them slightly with the white gel pen.
When those are done, using the scorer on your trimmer or a scoring board, score each of the horizontal and vertical lines, creating planks.
Here is a close-up, showing the score lines.
Then, to add even more interest to the planks, I sponged various colors on the different “planks” creating a multi-colored wood plank background.
Here are photo examples of two different sheets of the wood textures DSP. The top image in each photo is the original DSP and the lower one is the enhanced version I created with markers, scoring and sponging. I hope you like them.
I’ll update this post when I make cards using these background wood sheets.
