Scored Board Technique

This nifty background is little more than making scored lines with the Score Pal.  I began with a tan cardstock and scored lines to represent boards, added small dots to represent nails and slid a brown inkpad across it all to highlight those portions that were not scored.  The result is a pretty authentic looking bunch of boards IMO.
I added an image by Bad Axe Trading Co. to finish it off.  This makes a quick masculine card with very little time or effort.

Fantastic way to do a board background much better than lining up the ruler, drawing lines and so on! Great card!
