Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop! This month there are 11 of us highlighting altered wooden shapes. This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.
If you are coming from Melissa's Blog, you are on the right track!
Today I wanted to show you a really fun way to add a pattern to the plain wooden shapes that Close To My Heart sells. I am using the Wood Hearts but you can use this technique on any solid wooden shape.
See the intricate floral pattern on the wings on the March Stamp of the Month, Winged Masterpiece? I grabbed the dragonfly wing from the set and then simply stamped the wing pattern over the wooden shape using Intense Black ink, and left to dry.
I then added the heart to a strip of Lagoon cardstock, and created the rest of the card using the In This Together collection of paper, cardstock and dots.
Here is the finished card- the sentiment is also from the March Stamp of the Month. Stamping a pattern on the wood hearts really makes them coordinate with the floral paper and adds such fun to the project! You can use any wooden shape and any patterned stamp to create a look that suits your card or layout.
Thanks for stopping by! Please continue onto Cat's Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique! Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!
