I know...Please do not be mad!!! With all these new releases going on this week, I have mixed up my posting dates!! Argh!!! I've gotten it all straightened out now!!
Today, I say farewell to the lovely ladies at 4 Crafty Chicks!
It has been 5 wonderfully amazing weeks!! Leanne, Lori, Tina and Tamie...
Thank you so much for having me!! This is not good-bye..It's a simple, I'll see you again soon!!
This weeks challenge is: ANYTHING GOES and I decided to do something a little different.
I've been wanting to play with the wood burning kit, my husband bought me a few months ago. I saw this being done some time ago and I've had it on my to-do-list for ages.
I bought this chest from Michael's awhile back and it looked like the perfect canvas for this project. I had no idea what I was doing and how well it would turn out, so here went nothing!
I stamped the flower from Friends Forever by Inspired by Stamping using a light colored ink. Once you start burning the wood, the ink is no longer apparent or noticeable.
I sanded the top before I got started. Once I finished tracing the the flowers, I colored it with my Copic markers.
I went back and sanded the the image again....The color seemed really bright, so I colored washed the entire box with a watered down white paint. I wiped down the box with a dry cloth.
Love the final results.
Love the simplicity.
Hope you well come us this week...I know everyone LOVES an anything goes challenge. Have a great week and I will see you soon.
