Burn, Baby, Burn

It's not Disco Inferno, though if you're old enough you might think that from my title. It's actually some woodburning with my Hotmarks tool. I used a Hero Arts stamp, lightly inked it and then stamped on scrap wood. I used one tip to outline the stamp. Loved it!

I liked it so much, I bought some smoother wood meant for crafting and did the same. Then I used Distress Inks and a couple of Tombow markers to color it. I really like how it turned out. I also penciled in the words before I burned them and then made a little freehand border.

Here they are side by side. The tip I used is just the rounded tip so there's not a lot of finesse as far as line (with some tips you can turn and get a thin or thick line), but for my first time doing this, gotta say, I was happy with the results. And yep, I made this around Easter time, you're so clever to pick that up.

Here's the stamp I used. It's available at a2z Scrapbooking if you're interested (there's also an Antique Rose Stem stamp). And if you use CHARK15, my super secret code, you can get 15% off your total of $25 or more (before shipping). And that includes the items in the huge sale section!

I'll leave you with a little Disco Inferno for dancing purposes, or for studying the fashion and videography of the 1970s...nice shoes, dudes!

Happy Friday, friends!
