Hi friends! I have a Sizzix tutorial for you today, decorating a rustic wood panel. I like to work on wood and should remember to do so more often.
I used new dies, stamps and an embossing folder by Jillibean Soup, and the wood panel (6 x 6 x 2 in) is also from them. First, I was planning to use more colours, but then I changed my mind and stuck to neutral colours instead, to fit with the colour of the wood. As you probably know, I like to add photos to projects and I have used this particular photo of Anton in a similar way before (on this scenic layout). The print was a little too large for the balloon, but I used it anyway.
When the first layer of paint had dried, I dry-brushed some black paint all over the panel, and added touches of gold here and there.
These are the two die and stamp sets that I used, the Circle Words Framelits w/Stamps and the Hot Air Balloon. I have a thing for hot air balloons.
Thank you so much for looking!
