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!!
