Tuesday Tutorial–creating wood veneer stamps
I am here to hare with you a layout of mine, using something that I created for my background. Super easy way to make stamps!
One would think, while looking at all my stamps (and there are quite a bit!) that I would have a choice of patterns, like flowers. Honestly, I don’t.I was looking for a certain type of flower stamp. I surprised myself. lol. I had a vision for my layout, as I wanted to keep my layout very upbeat, and fun.
I then remembered something from a while ago, that a friend of mine had shared. She ended up making her own stamps, with wood veneers. I looked through my wood veneer, and found some shapes. I also found some wine corks (sans wine, of course!), glue dots, and inks.
I adhered a glue dot to the wine cork, and attached the chosen wood veneer.
I then applied ink to the ‘stamp’.
You may have to press several times to cover your shape, depending on the size.
Once satisfied with the coverage, stamp away! As you can see, I used three (3) different types of flowers. After I am finished with my stamping, I now have 3 colored wood veneer, all ready to be used.
As you can see from my layout, I outlined my stamped images. I also added more color with my inks. The possibilities are endless.
Thank you for allowing me to share with you this little tutorial. It is super easy and fun!
