The "Weathered Wood" technique is something that we learnt at Amanda's training in April and everyone loved how effective it was. Basically you score lines onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and swipe your ink pads in the same direction as the score lines, adding two to three colours until you have the acquired effect!
The stamps used were from "Plane and Simple" and there was the option to change the greeting to "Happy Birthday" as this is also part of the set. We used the Spritzer Tool on the aeroplane layer with a Crumb Cake Marker Pen and distressed the edges using the files from the Distressing Kit. All in all a little grungy but the vintage effect was achieved.
