I made this background some time ago for something where it did not work but I really like it for the background on this. I embossed with a Sizzix folder called Woodgrain I think. I think I thinned out some ink and painted it over the embossing. Like I said it was awhile ago so I can’t quite remember all the steps. For the wreath I used a die from the Hero Arts September 2016 My Monthly Hero set and one from an Impression Obsession set (DIE023-X). The guitar and the sentiment are some random stamps I have. I hand cut the guitars. My hub plays the guitar so that is where I was coming from. He has been a great step-dad to my son and a great dog dad.
