OWH TT - woodgrain technique

Many thanks to Nancy at Operation Write Home for linking us up with this awesome woodgrain inking technique today - it is SO EASY! 

Here's what I made. This is sketch 17 as well:

Jilibean Soup apple cheddar soup papers
Momento rich cocoa, black inks and SU pumpkin pie ink
Unity Stamp Co stamps

Gina K dark chocolate cardstock
UPDATE: I decided to make a few more and experiment with some lighter colors for the woodgrain. Um, hello - LOVE!

Same deets as above but woodgrain created with Ti m
Holtz antique linen ink. :)

I'm not surprised that I chose autumnal colors. It's about 20 degrees with below zero windchills and blowing snow. GOOD GRIEF! I don't think my husband would appreciate me cranking the heat to get in a summery mood. LOL! ;)

You can find everyone else's projects here. :)



  1. Your cards are wonderful! Thank you for showing us yet another appealing way to use the wood grain look!!!

  2. Nice job Jen! I can't wait to check out that tut and give it a go.

  3. Wonderful job! I love the rich autumny colors too. They look perfect with the woodgrain. I can't wait to try this tutorial myself!

  4. This is the perfect background with that canning jar stamp. Vintagey awesomness. :)

  5. How funny is this...I just posted my card for the "wood grain effect" at OWH and I used a Mason Jar image also. Your wood grain is EXCELLENT!!!

  6. Love your jars! Isn't that a fun tutorial? I love the cool looks you can create! Thanks for sharing your cards! I have a feeling that I will be doing a lot of this too!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
