Technique Blog Hop ~ Altered Wooden Shapes

Welcome to the Technique Blog Hop!

This month we are exploring techniques to alter wooden shapes. Close to My Heart came out with these cute wood shapes that you can use to embellish your cards and scrapbook pages. They are wonderful in their natural state but you can also color them. As you hop around you will see some fun ways to incorporate these shapes and see how we used them. If you are coming from LAUREN MOORE’s Blog, you are on the right track! If you get lost you can find a full list of participants HERE we have about 11 makers participating in this hop.

I decided to play around with these adorable Kitchen Gnomes Stamp Set and Thin Cuts. I colored her with my Spectrum Noir Tri-blend markers. I pulled a couple of the wooden shapes for the Eat Play Love collection. I used my Lemonade Shimmer Brush to color the wood flowers and I used Candied Apple Oxide ink to color the bowl. I added a bit of Platinum Glitter Glue to the wood pieces. After attaching the bowl, I cut a second pair of hands to attach.

I realized my card meets the requirements for Double Trouble Challenge #79. I use a gnome for my magical creature and I used the a thin cut to cut the gnome and bracket for the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto BRANDI ROBINSONS’s Blog where you will find some additional artwork!  Be sure to leave a comment and happy hopping!

Happy Crafting!
