Faux wood background tutorial

Hello all!!
 hope you all kick started your new year celebrations.This is the last post of the year in crafters corner.We all wish you a very HAPPY N PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR.Have a crafty 2013 ahead:))

   Its kavitha here to share a tutorial today on how to make a faux wood background for your cards.Of-course you get lots of embossing folders for wood backgrounds,but i am going to show you a easy method which can be done within few minutes with your scoreboard.
Keep you card stock on the martha stewart scoreboard and randomly score the lines using bone folder.Make small lines instead of scoring from top to bottom at a stretch.Keep moving the card while scoring so that you don't get even lines.

Hope you can see how the lines have come out in this picture.Then using vintage photo distress inks first distress the whole card stock.

Then make it darker from the outside,so that you get dark n light shades.If you want more darker add a little bit of black only on the edges.Now your wood background is ready to use in your card.

I have decorated the card with stamped and colored butterflies from hero arts.For the sentiment panel i used spellbinders floral oval and classic oval dies.Sentiment is from fiskars Make a wish stamp set.Some ribbon n button to finish the card.
Hope you liked my tutorial and card. (All craft supplies under one roof)
