The Male Room #56 Use Wood

The Male Room has a new challenge starting today and we'd like to see some wood on your project.

I knew I had some left over bits of paper with wood designs on, so I searched them out and that's where I began.

The pieces weren't large enough to have the grain in the wood facing the same way, but I'm quite liking the way the two different directions look and consider this a happy unintentional outcome.

I've been hanging on to this wooden 'hugs' wood cut for some time and decided now was a good time to get it out there and onto a card. I simply added a stamped sentiment that matched and a trio of wooden hearts and called it done.

Stamps: Uniko, Simply Said II
Inks: SU, early espresso
Papers: Kaisercraft, Sea Breezes; Simple Stories, Bloom & Grow
Embellishments: Lawn Fawn, scripty hugs wood veneer; Becky higgins, PL wood veneer hearts

How will you interpret The Male Room's wood theme? Going to be lots of fun watching your creations pop up in the gallery. Need a bit more of a kick start? Well off you go then to check out the rest of tMR DT ideas - here.

I'm really pleased to have had you drop by today, thanks so much.  And keep crafting!
