Stamping on Wood

Hi Everyone! While in a stamp store a couple of months ago I made the most wonderful discovery! Wood! Mabye its been there all along and I never noticed it. But this time I did and I had to have it. Now its been sitting on self for a long time waiting and waiting. I didn't want to waste it after all. At last I decided to be brave and created this card.

First I stamped Penny Black's Inclinations using Memories Dye Ink on to the wood panel. I also used a few other fun techniques on this card. To create the flower I stamped Burst of Blue, then filled it in with text using a sentiment from HERE. Finally to add color to the flower and mat around the wood I inked up an acrylic block with Distress Ink, sprayed it with water and then layed the acrylic block over the paper (a trick I learned from Lisa Spangler -thanks!).
Finally, for those of you that might be interested the wood I used is by Creative Imaginations. It is called "real wood thin cherry" and is a veneer backed by paper (makes for easy cutting).


Hope you get creative with a few of these ideas! I'd love to see what you come up with if you stamp on wood. Send me a link!
