Distress Oxide Snowflake Cards

I love experimenting with mixed media... I'm not good at it, but it still is a lot of fun! 

These two cards were created by blending a background using Distress Oxide inks. While the ink was still wet, I spritzed some water on each. I also used some Distress Sprays to add some extra splatters. The last step for the background was to splatter some white acrylic paint mixed with water. Those pieces were left to dry overnight.

The next day, I embossed some snowflake images in white on each card. I also added very small dots of Stickles and Liquid Pearls in coordinating colours on each. The card fronts were adhered to craft foam, then to white cardstock and finally to coordinating coloured cardstock. They were placed on a top folding card base. 

Products used are as follows: 

Paper: Neenah Solar White Cardstock, Teal and Purple Cardstock ( 

Stamps: Snow Flurries (CTMH), Christmas Joy (Hero Arts), Peace-Love-Joy (Gina K. Designs) 

Inks: Versamark, DO Inks - Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, Prize Ribbon, Salvaged Patina, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, DO Sprays - Peacock Feathers, Prize Ribbon, Mermaid Lagoon

Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Craft Foam, Stickles - Steel, Mermaid, Liquid Pearls - Lavender Lace, Juniper, White Craft Paint

Hello, Alyson! Your Christmas cards are gorgeous! I can never figure out what mixed media is all about, but I love to make inky backgrounds too. Yours are beautiful! I especially love the blue one!
