The Shining Light Challenge ODBDSLC154 is to make a project that incorporates wood or stone.
This challenge was the perfect opportunity for me to drag out my wood-grain embossing folder and the Quote Collection 1 stamp set (that I had not yet inked up).
To create the wood background, I inked the embossing folder with brown chalk ink, then embossed the paper. This is a great way to emboss and ink at the same time. I love the soft look of the ink, and the way the ink "settles" in the grain of the wood.
I stamped the sentiment with watermark ink, then embossed with green embossing powder. In the bottle the powder looked dark green, but after it was embossed, it turned out a more spruce green, which was perfect for the pine trees.
I got a great impression with the folder and the WorldWin ColorMates Smooth cardstock. I never use smooth cardstock except for stamping....until I got two huge boxes of the smooth from WorldWin for DT work! I love this paper!
