My first time stampin' on veneer
1 Attachment(s)
It's been a while now since DH took me to a place that sells exotic woods. While there, I noticed a box that had a bunch of veneer in it. I asked how much they charged for a piece and they told me to take what I wanted. I ended up taking just three pieces, but enough for me to play with.

Well, even though I had read Inky Whiskers' dissertation on stamping veneer, I was more than a little apprehensive.

At the end of August, a friend of ours who is very well schooled in construction, had his birthday. I've had a difficult time making masculine cards, so veneer seemed to be the solution to this challenge.

I followed Inky's directions by sealing my piece of veneer with a spray sealant after I cut the size piece I wanted to use. After letting the sealant dry, I proceeded with the stamping of my chosen images.

As I do not know the name of the adhesive I used, I can tell you that it comes on a roll, is double sided and has a red backing. It's just what the doctor ordered when adhering a piece of veneer to cardstock!

DH gave me rave reviews at the birthday party at which I must have turned a gazillion shades of red! Anyway, here it is:

Excellent job and looks like you had fun playing with it. Can't wait to see how it inspires you for other cards!
(lol I saw the AA card so I can tell you are thinking and playing on!):clap:

After I got over my initial apprehension, it was a lot of fun playing with the veneer. You know, I was going to post that card from Auntie Amy's Sketch Challenge here, but I didn't directly stamp onto the veneer.

BTW, the AA card belongs to someone else. Mine has birds affixed to pieces of veneer.

Incredible, AQ. Way to go "out of the box!"

Thank you, Renee! I've never been one for 'staying inside the box'! TFL
