Several weeks ago I saw this wood veneer paper at Archiver's. It's real WOOD! You can see and feel the grain. I've been hoarding it because it's so expensive (12x12 was $4.00) and I hated to experiment and fail (and waste it).
I thought long and hard about the ink to use and ended up with Archival because it wouldn't run when wet. But for coloring I was stumped. I thought anything I used would follow the grain under the "image" edge. I stamped the main image, stamped a smaller section on a scrap and then the very center. I will say this wood paper does cut nicely! Since there were printed scraps I played with those. I tried COPICS first and that did run. It looked like a blurry mess. Then I tried a very "dry" aqua pen and Distress Inks. As long as the brush tip wasn't too wet, I got a nice amount of color and no seeping.
