Karen Burniston Design Team Challenge - Oxide Ink Christmas Sleigh Pop-Up Card

 It's Karen Burniston's Design Team Challenge day, and the theme this month is
We have to incorporate inks, paints, sprays or pastes into our card.
I decided to give myself the challenge of using zero patterned papers, and so I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks with foam applicators to create the graded background, and all the other coloured card stock on my card.

These are the colours I used.

I then splattered some Minc Reactive Mist Medium spray on the background, and heat embossed silver embossing powder over it.
I also added some snowflakes from the Sleigh Pop-Up die set to the background, then cut out the sleigh parts and gifts from some silver cardstock and my inked linen texture cardstock.

I cut a square from paper-backed red satin, using the Crosshatch Squares die set, then layered inked and plain squares on top, along with Karen Burniston's Merry Christmas die.

I had a little help from my new puppy Freddy while photographing!!

  1. Beautiful! I have the older sleigh that came out with the reindeer, I love all the little presents you put inside! I'm still trying to get used to the newer versions of all the distress inks in their "oxide" iteration, its amazing that the sleigh is picked raspberry or that plus candied apple? You did such an awesome job!

    1. Thanks Kathy! I really like how well the Oxides blend - I used Abandoned Coral and Candied Apple together on the sleigh. The Raspberry was just used for one of the presents xx
