I will admit that I am a hoarder. Why else would I keep designer paper for years that I hated. I have had this paper for about 9 years. I like the colors but the design just doesn't fit my style. So it has been sitting in a drawer of paper waiting. It must have been hard waiting that long to be used, especially when some of friends got picked. Today for the SCS sketch challenge, SC480 I knew I wanted to faux barn board technique to look like a wooden fence as a back drop for my poppies. I wanted a little bit of color and design showing through and I wasn't too particular about it, so I pulled this paper out and added shoe polish, glue and paint.
This is the card I made yesterday with the same set using the colors for the SCS color challenge.
