I looked back into the archives and found a tutorial sharing how to create the Faux Wood technique which I think is FAUX FANTASTIC! Enjoy!
Start with a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock (or any colour you want).
Using the Direct to Paper technique apply Whisper White craft ink to the paper by dragging it down in one direction. Let dry.
Use a toothbrush and reinkers to create your woodgrain. Place a few drops of ink refill onto a disposable plate (I used Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip).
Cut the pieces into 3/4" strips.
Use the Direct to Paper technique to add chocolate chip ink to all four sides of each strip of "wood".
Here's the finished card…
This card uses the For Father stamp set from the Occasions Mini catalogue and the sentiment from Sincere Salutations (both have since retired but you could use the truck from Countryside and any salutation).
