Ready for some more Stampendous JUMBO cling sneak peeks? This next project was a fun one! I used the Jumbo Peony Set CRS5001 to stamp the flower on the box in light brown ink. Next I went over the stamped image with my wood burning tool burning in the outline of stamp. Because I used light ink, I don't have to be exact with my lines. Once you go in with shadowing and paints you won't notice if your lines are off a bit. I colored the image with Derwent Watercolor pencils. After it was dry I stained the box with an antiquing glaze. Normally watercolors will muddy if you put another liquid layer on top of them, but the Derwent Inktense are permanent after they dry. The final touch was to go in and add dots of white acrylic paint to the image. 

Have you seen the latest video from Stampendous? Check it out as Tammy Wilson shows how to use the JUMBO Peony Cling to create a gorgeous stamped box. 

Be sure to stop back tomorrow because I have still more JUMBO stamp samples to share. :)

This is amazing. I haven't seen woodburning for years. What a great way to combine two crafts!
