The paint finally dried for my Technique Lovers challenge card! I used Tim Holtz Tall Pines embossing Folder on white card panel then painted over the panel with Weathered Wood Distress Paint and let it dry. When it was dry, I sanded over the trees and then sponged Frayed Burlap Distress ink over them. I wiped over the area with a baby wipe to remove any ink from the blue. I added light blue Tiny Twinkles to the trees and stamped my sentiment.
This was a fun technique today Sabrina and I think I'll try it again with some other embossing folders!

What a wonderful CAS design using this technique, Julia. Love that you took it from being a background into being the card. The brushstrokes in the background and the natural look of the trees make it look like a painted panel. The bling added to the trees looks super.
