2 Ways to Watercolor on Wood

Although Wood Cut Embellishments are quite trendy, I was having a hard time using them.  It just seemed that they were “unfinished” and not coordinating well with my project.  What I really wanted was coloured wood embellishments… and that’s when it hit me!  I could colour them myself!

Watch this video to learn 2 different ways to colour wood cuts!

Here’s the finished look when the colouring is complete:

The flower wood cut embellishment comes from Stampin’ Up!’s Hello Lovely Project Life accessory kit.  These accessory kits are a huge value!  Check out what comes in this one kit for $24 CDN:
