This week our challenge is brought to us by our Trendsetter of the week, Tracy! She has challenged us to make a card or project using something that is VERY trendy right now, wood grain!!
This is my first time using wood grain. I have paper pads that have sheets of wood grain in them, but I haven't used them. I was cleaning my craft room today and found a background stamp that is wood grain and decided to give it a go for myself. I ended up cutting up strips and stamping them because in my head I wanted to stagger the print, but it didn't come out that way. I'll just have to keep practicing. Either way, I like how my card came out. I used this fabulous set called You're a Hoot! It's a great set...be sure to check it out!
To be eligible for the giveaway, create a card or project using this challenge, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (February 4th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!
By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the lookout to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)
You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG192 so we can check out your beautiful work!
