Burnin’ Love

So a certain wood burning tool caught my eye in Michael’s a couple months back and I was curious…

Studio Calico had one for sale on their site during the Black Friday sale so I dropped it right into my cart.  When it arrived on my doorstep, I was super cited.  NOW what to do with it?!

Well I have these cool stamps by Kellie Winnell…maybe with a steady hand I could give it a whirl.

I tried using black ink to start with which was too dark.  Tried Versamark then which was too light.  Finally I  tried Ranger’s Archival Ink in Coffee which worked beautifully.  I warmed up the tool for the allotted 5 minutes and started practicing.  You have to be careful not to leave the tip pressed down too long or too hard; an easy constant stroke turned out best.  photo 3 (3)
