Joyous Holiday Crafting

Happy Holiday Crafting! I’m back playing with mixed media. It all started with a dry embossing challenge, and the fun began. Here’s the recipe for the background:

  • Silver Cardstock
  • Fern Embossing Folder
  • Green Alcohol Ink
  • Distressed Oxide Paint: Rustic Wilderness, Walnut Stain.
  • Distressed Oxide: Bundled Sage
  • SSS Snow stencil
  • Range Matte Texture Paste
  • Ranger Rock Candy Dry Glitter
  • Perfect Pearls: Confetti White, Zinnia

Once I had the background done, I cut the wreath(Tonic studios-Under The Mistletoe), twice, out of white card stock. I then used distressed inks in browns (Walnut Stain, Gathered Twigs, Ground Expresso) for the wreath in the back and greens (Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint) for the wreath in the foreground. Once they were stacked, I added Red Nuvo drops and allowed them to dry. I then splattered some white gauche paint. Then on to Ranger Matte Texture Paste spread randomly over the wreaths and Range Rock Candy Dry Glitter sprinkled on top. A few last gold stars were added from the stash. The wreath is mounted with some foam tape on the background.

The JOY, deer and #25 were all cut from the Cricut. Joy was cut out of red card stock and inked with Black Soot Distressed Oxide. Then fine red glitter and Clear Texture Paste from Range were placed over the letters. #25 was embossed with Ranger embossing dauber and Marshmallow embossing powder from Emerald Creek. The deer was colored with Distressed Oxide Walnut Stain and Gathered Twigs. Then details were added to the deer with Prismacolor pencils along with some white and black gel pens.

The wood frames come from Hero Arts-Wood Frame Infinity Dies. Then Distressed Oxide paints (Black Soot, Walnut Stain, Ground Expresso) along with Gold acrylic were used to add interest to them.

The last bit of fun was the snow. It is a combination of pearls, clear drops, Ranger Matte Texture Paste, Range Rock Candy Dry Glitter and some mica flakes from the stash.

Happy Crafty Weekend, Everyone!
