This is another card I made for the Orphanage in Mexico with the Wood Veneer. I started with SCS sketch 197 then stamped the tea cup border stamp from Lasting Impressions With Panache on a piece of posterboard backed maple veneer with Momento black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. After that I colored in the images with SU Pretty In Pink, So Saffron, Ballet Blue and Certainly Celery Markers using the TJ marker watercoloring technique. This kind of veneer is great for watercoloring by the way. The Tea Time sentiment was stamped with black Versafine ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. The pink patterned paper is from the Memory Box sugar collection. The Ballet blue piece was embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder then matted on a piece of SU So Saffron cardstock. The piece behind that is Posterboard backed Cherry Veneer. Finished card size is 41/4x51/2. If you are interested in trying some of the Wood Veneer email Pat at email@example.com for more information about it. I am off to work on another project with it now. I hope to be back soon to share it with you. Until then I hope you have a great Saturday.
