Stamping on wood.

Hello to everyone and happy first day of spring!

Just got back form a road trip to Texas with my husband. Took more pictures than even I expected. It was SO beautiful along the way. Everything was so green and lush. I loved spending time with the family in Texas, just laughing and having a good time. Now I'm back and to get into the swing of things, I have a project that have been thinking about for awhile. I am always thinking about all the things that I can stamp on. My husband is a woodworker, so naturally wood is always at the top of my list. This piece of wood is a off-cut of Alder wood.
The most important thing is to sand the wood with fine sandpaper so that the texture is as smooth as possible. Stamping on the wood, Versafine is a must, followed be clear embossing powder ( this keeps the marker from running where its not suppose to be) I choose Distress Marker for this project. I have used other mediums, it seems that the Distress Markers colors are the most true and it is much easier to shade. Although, I suspect that Copics or other markers might work just as well.  I am so happy at the way this project turned out, because, other attempts did not go as well. I hope that you enjoyed this project and it encourages you to look around for other things to stamp on.

Bye for now

  1. I love this and need to try it! My hubby is a cabinet maker so there's a never ending supply of wood bits around here! Thanks so much for joining us for our first Lawn Fawnatics challenge!
