Text & Texture: Wood Slices Tip Sheet
1. To create tone-on-tone backgrounds, choose a colored cardstock and then two shades of coordinating inks for the two-step wood slice background.
2. For a more dramatic, colorful background, stamp the wood slices with bright colored inks onto white or cream cardstock.
3. Use ombre inking to create a dramatic effect - ink the top portion of the stamp with one color, and the bottom with another, blending the two in the center.
4. Consider stamping the bottom, more solid image in colored ink, then heat embossing the top layer with metallic embossing powder.
5. The sentiments in this set are great for holiday projects as well as masculine birthday and more. Create quick and easy cards that let the pretty background shine by stamping one of the sentiments onto a strip of cardstock layered over the background.
6. The wood slice background is slightly smaller than an A2 card, allowing for a nice border around the image. It’s also a great size to stamp onto any of the largest mats included in the Noted die sets.
7. Try stamping the wood slice background, then layer some die cut branches or pine boughs over the top.
8. Pair the Text & Texture: Wood Slice background with the Background Basics: Birch set for an extra woodsy touch. Try stamping a word die cut with the birch pattern, then layer it over the wood slice background.
9. Try stamping the wood slice background onto watercolor paper, then brush over with a water brush to create a watercolored look.
10. Sponge some ink onto your cardstock background before stamping to achieve a softer look, or sponge multiple ink colors before stamping the wood slices for an ombre effect.
This gorgeous two-step all-over wood slice pattern can be used to create dramatic backgrounds. Create tone-on-tone backgrounds by stamping shades of coordinating ink onto colored cardstock, or create colorful backgrounds by using colored inks onto contrasting cardstock. Incorporate ombre inking techniques or heat embossing for even more drama!
