Welcome to this week's Just Us Girl's Challenge
Sharyn here with this week's Technique Challenge. I've chosen a fun technique called Weathered Wood Background. If you have not done this before, I've added a video to help you get started.
Here's my card
For my first card, I wanted to do the wood background in pretty beachy colors. I chose to use Gina K. Designs Turquoise Sea, Memento Gray Flannel & Summer Sky inks to create the background. The wreath is from Impression Obsession. I cut it using GKD Kraft card stock trying to give it a more grapevine feel. The Easter Eggs are from Verve. The nice people at Verve sent this stamp to me as a thank you for a purchase I made. I colored it with Copic markers. The Happy Easter sentiment is from GKD Basket Blessings stamp set.

I try to work several weeks ahead and at the time I made this card it was very much in the dead of Winter. As I was getting ready to post it, I thought I should have made a card more suited to Spring, so I created the Easter Egg Wreath card. I thought I would go ahead and show this one as a second example. I used a stamp set from PTI called Two Feet Deep....love these snowshoes! The background was made using Pumice Stone & Black Soot Distress inks. I love that pop of bright red and the gingham bow.
