I've been in love with wood grain probably before it was a huge thing. I also have an obsession with Kraft paper. The wood grain kraft paper I'm working with today is made by Stampin It Up. Check out the link for the other papers this came with. I wanted to show today just how incredibly easy it is to alter this paper to take the shape of any color wood you like!
|Above is all I used. 2 inks of choice I choose a sepia and a timber brown. Then a blending tool, a wet wipe or wet paper towel, and a stain of choice. The more colors you choose the more depth the wood has.|
|I started off using a brown ink of choice and my blending tool. This is just a sepia color.|
|Then I took my stain and swiped it across the entire piece. You could choose to do only section of the piece, I was okay doing the entire piece. See how the paper absorbs it. But the embossed sections resists it.|
|Take the wet wipe to the piece again. You can see the difference.|
