We will be making this card tonight at my Stamp Club meeting. It was inspired by several cards I saw on Pinterest by Janine Rawlins of Australia. It's an easy and fun technique--just use strips of painter's or masking tape rubbed into ink pads, then press onto the cardstock. It makes a great background, and it doesn't require a lot of materials!
I'm loving that Hardwood background stamp! I wasn't going to buy it, but I've seen so many lovely samples, I couldn't resist.
