Hello to everyone and happy first day of spring!
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
