Dreaming of a White Christmas by Fliss Goodwin


A bit of wishful thinking from me this week as I have a Christmas card to share (can I hear groans lol). This is one of the images from Donna’s gorgeous new Christmas sets and the oxide inks have come out to play again.


Distress Oxide Inks – Faded Jeans, Broken China, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint, Fossilised Amber


Cut a piece of mixed media paper to fit your chosen card blank (mine is a square kraft card) and as you’ll see, I’ve used the bit torn off the pad as I love the shabby look it gives the card.

I then added patches of the 2 blue shades of Oxide ink to my craft mat, misted them with water and pressed on the paper to pick up the ink. I carried on with this until I was happy with the effect.

I next stamped on the cottage scene with the sepia ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then painted the image using the other shades of Oxide ink. I find if you pick up the colour with a damp brush and paint, it gives really good coverage on top of the underneath colour of ink.

I used the Poinsettia Tree stencil, which has some handy snowflakes, with the embossing dabber to stencil on some snow which I heat embossed with the white embossing powder.

I added the panel to my card blank and finished off with my chosen text sticker.
