A Day For Daisies: “Add Wood” Challenge

It’s Friday and time for a new challenge at A Day For Daisies!  This week we are looking for “A Touch of Wood” on your project.  The challenge will run through Thursday, February 25th at noon on the A Day For Daisies Blog!

For my card today I used the fabulous image called, “Stick Horse Yellow.”  As the challenge was to add a touch of wood, I used “wood paper” to print my image on.  You can dye cut and print on “wood paper” so I thought this would be perfect to make my rocking horse with.

I then took my Copic R46 marker and colored it in being very careful to stay away from the black line as the wood bleeds terribly.  I also lined the image with a sharpie after I fussy cut it, which also bled a little, but I like the look a lot. I added a deeper shade of wood by distressing the bottom with gathered twigs Distress Ink. 

My paper pad is My Minds Eye Lost & Found – Union Square collection and wood designer collection.  The rectangle was cut out using Lawn Fawn Stitched rectangle die and the red borders are also wood paper colored with Copic R46.  Last, the sentiment is from the Mini Tags collection by Papertrey Ink.

We’d love for you to visit our Facebook Community Page where you can post your creations in addition to adding them to the blog.  I can’t wait to see your “wood” creations this week.
