Christmas 2017 Series - Distress Oxide Background Snowflakes

Posted on November 20, 2017 at 8:30 PM


Todays card uses a well known technique to create a lovely snowflake themed background. I have used the paper to make a few projects, not just this card and they will be featured on a future post, so once you have made a sheet of it will be good value for money!



Start off stamping a snowflake pattern over a sheet of card with a Versamark or similar ink pad.



Add some white embossing powder and heat set it. Go back in and fill in any places you have missed, so that there are no obvious gaps in your pattern.



Next, pick out your Distress Oxide Inks. I have gone for all the blues here with a bit of violet/purple colour. Gradually building up colour, dip and wipe your card into puddles of ink on your craft mat. If you need to see more on how this is done, then you can read our series on Distress Oxide Inks.



If you want a bit of shimmer on your background, wait until it is dry and then brush over some iridescent acrylic medium and let that dry.




I was super pleased how this turned out and managed to create a few projects from just this one piece of card. If you want to see what, then stop by the blog again to find out!
