It'll be officially Summer tomorrow, so here is my card to welcome the sun and the fun! I'll also be showing how I made the weathered fence on this card below. Have a fun summer.

another look at the finished card ...
Here's how I made these weathered wood out of chipboard ...
|Cut the chipboard into long rectangular pieces.|
|Add a coat of gesso and let dry.|
|When the gesso dry, spray with any color you like.|
I diluted tan paint with water in a spritz bottle and gave it a random spray and let them dry.
|Add some clear crackle paint and let it dry.|
You can use these chipboard at this step, but I'm going to make them more distress.
|I'm adding a light blue paint to the crackled area to bring out the crackles.|
|Making it more distress with some brown ink around the edges.|
|and this is what you will get, again you can use them at this step.|
But I need mine to be more "weathered" for my project, so I will add another step.
|Make dings and scratches with any tool you have, I'm using my tweezers and sandpaper.|
|The end result are these weathered wood planks made from chipboard.|
Thanks for reading, I hope you find this post helpful. Have a wonderful weekend!
