Swap # 5 (the last one)!

The last swap I participated in was a background swap.  I made "Faux Barn Board" which is the coolest technique ever!  I found it on Splitcoast in their tutorials.  You need a piece of light colored cardstock.  You paint it with white slick paint that has 4 - 5 drops of reinker mixed into it.  I used soft suede.  Let it dry and then paint over the top with a thin coat of white Elmer's Glue.  Let it get ALMOST dry (this is the trickiest part) then paint over the top of it with a thin coat of white slick paint.  Then the magic happens!!  As the paint dries it starts to split like wood grain!  Very cool.  Here's a picture of my background.....I'll be back later with a card made using this background!
