Balsa Wood Colouring

G'day Bloggers!

So I'm still picking up some new techniques from Online Card Classes Stretch Your Stamps 2 - this time we had a tutorial by Debby, which showed how to stamp on balsa wood and colour it with Copics.  I was so tempted to completely copy her card - it really is gorgeous, but here's my version:

I have so few Copics that I'm always very limited with colours - again, I attempted to blend a Kaisercraft blender pen with some very light pink Copics but I found that they wouldn't blend completely, partly because the Kaisercraft colour was so vibrant - it kind of bled into the wood.  I think next time I'll use lighter Copics only.  Still like it though!

Short but sweet today - thanks for popping over!
