More Fun with Veneer!

Did my veneer tip sheet get your creativity flowing? Do you want to learn more about what can be done with wood veneer? Then head on over to gg designs & check out their September challenge featuring wood veneer!

Here's one of my veneer practice pieces using a stamp from LIWP colored with pencils, synthetic paint thinner & over layed with Twinks.

This was one of my postcard entries for a contest held by Dowlen W&P. I heat embossed both the main image & the background on Maple veneer using SU! stamps. This is the only type of veneer that holds up under a heat tool, but be very careful to NOT over heat it! I dyed the veneer after spray sealing using a brayer & rainbow dye ink pad. The sealer blocked the ink in some areas giving the piece a variegated look.

This is a spiffed up version of a tag I made for an RSC monthly Color Challenge swap. April's I think. I used chalk inks & Brilliance metallic ink to stamp on the veneer.

These projects are only the beginning as the possibilities are ENDLESS!!! So go out there and make something beautiful using veneer, you'll thank yourself. Happy Stamping!
