MCT Trending Now ~ Hello there!

Happy Thursday, today is Trending Now at My Creative Time.  There are so many trends in paper crafting, some are new and some that seem to stay fresh all the time.  Today we are featuring Wood and Lace, this is one that seems to stay current.  

I first taped off my card base, then stamp the grainy wood background stamp.  Before removing the painters tape I blending ink in several colors for depth over the stamped wood image.  Next I carefully removed the tape.

I then outlined the wood with gold gel pen, I wanted it to be a bit rough.  For the sentiment, I rounded the stamp on my block, then stamped on the circle die.
I just love that fun phone die!!!
