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.

  3. 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…

  4. Love that stamp and all the ways you use it. The buttons are the perfect finishing touch!

  5. 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.

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