Here's Leah -
Wood veneer has to be one of the hottest items for this year's scrapbooking supplies! Today I wanted to share some fun I had by adding rubons to some wooden embellishments that I had in my scrapbook stash! I decided that I wanted to dress up my banner pieces a bit to add to the bold, spring look of my card. I had fun choosing colors that reminded me of the first signs of spring when I was a kid.
Supplies you'll need:
Hambly papers, transparencies and rubons of your choice for your project.
These are the ones I used:
- Garden Party Transparency in Teal
- Diagonal Alley Paper
- Kraft Label Stickers
- Flowers and Feathers rubons in pink
- Flowers and Feathers rubons in Yellow
- Clear Butterfly and Floral Stickers
Ink of your choice, I chose black
plain wooden scrapbook embellishments, I used the banner pieces from Studio Calico
Start by choosing a rubon to add to your wood piece, and applying it. There was a bit or excess hanging over the edge when I finished, so I just gently rubbed my finger along the edge to brush it off and bend it over the edge.
I chose not to ink both of the styles of rubon that I chose. I wanted the yellow to stand on it's own.
Place your wooden piece on a paper towel or other surface that's safe for the ink, and spritz it until it's covered well.
Let it sit for just a minute or two, so the ink can soak in a bit. Wood is an organic substance, so each piece will color a bit differently.
Dab the excess ink off of the wooden piece, and attach to your project!
