I tried a new technique for my Creative Critterz Imaginations design team post today. Last week on her blog, Raspberry Suite, Dawn McVey demonstrated stamping and die cutting balsa wood. I loved the look, and it made me wonder if I could run balsa wood through the Imagine. I haven't worked up the nerve to try cutting the balsa wood with the Imagine, but I was easily able to print on it. My image and the pattern that makes my background paper are both from the Better Together Imagine cartridge. After printing, I ran the balsa wood through my Cuttlebug with a Papertrey Ink die.
I love the rustic look of the balsa wood! See my video below to see how to use this technique.
