Designer: Judy Kreucher (jaydekay)
Date Posted: July 17, 2011
Keywords: DOLCE, JustRite
Category: All Occasion
Stamps: JustRite Bird Houses Set and Just Because Set
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Adirondack mushroom
Embellishments: ribbon, gold brad
Tools:Spellbinders Rose Creations, circles and Fleur de Lis Square dies, JustRite nested borders, gamsol, Prisma Color pencils, EK success 3D-dots
Paper: white, black, dp, green

To get a weathered wood look on the bird houses, I have found leaving just a bit of white showing through looks a bit more rustic.
When most of us color things we tend to color in everything, forgetting that white is a color too, so leave a bit of white for highlights here and there.
You will soon find out how much you want to leave to get just the feel you are looking for!
