Hi! Today I am participating in Kylie’s International Blog Highlights for October. I decided to share this card using the Faux Woodburning Technique I saw done by France Martin.
I think this is a great technique for masculine cards. The tree is from Rooted In Nature while the sentiment is from the Field Journal stamp set.
You’ll need Watercolor Paper, a water painter, Early Espresso ink and a Stamparatus. That’s it!
Use the Stamparatus to align your image on the Watercolor paper. Ink with Early Espresso and stamp. Repeat this 2-3 times to make sure you have a good amount of ink on your paper.
Run the water painter back and forth (side-to-side, left-to-right or right-to-left) over the image to cover your watercolor paper. This pulls some of the Early Espresso ink over the paper giving that Woodburning look.
Here’s a video where I share this technique:
