28 Lilac Lane: Wood watercolor piece

tropical_project_wood copy

To create a piece like this you’ll first stamp an image onto a wood piece, then emboss and color. Once happy? Add some buttons and bits!

Yes, it really is that easy. I’m working on another of these for a class project and future YouTube video as well. This first one was an experiment – and features my “Tropical Twist” kit from the 28 Lilac Lane line. The kits will begin shipping soon – this project was on display at the CHA show earlier this month.


The stamp used is by Prima and is a favorite. Below you’ll find (affiliate) links to supplies used.

  2. This is such a beautiful piece 🙂
    it has inspired a project idea for my grade three girls’ craft club. Now if I can get my dad to cut some wood slices for me…

  3. May, So very Beautiful!!! I have this exact piece of wood and EVERY Prima stamp they have made. I would love to make this, I am a little confused about the embossing part? After putting embossing on would I heat the wood or just start coloring and can I use copics on the wood? May thanks for your help. By the way, I LOVE your scan n cut videos, they are awesome and so helpful.

  4. I cannot wait for 28 Lilac Lane!! So many cool buttons and do-dads. It’s going to be hard to decide on colors!
