Woodware challenge - Make Christmas special with Metallic F/X

My photo doesn't really show how metallic this background to my card is. Shame!

But this is what I did.....

Emboss your image (I used JGS458) with white embossing powder and heat set.
Mix up a teaspoon of hand sanitiser gel with a little
Dreamweaver Metallic F/X of your choice of colour.
Brush this over your stamped piece and wipe away the excess with kitchen paper.
Thats it! Its really easy and very effective.

I've coloured in the berries with a marker pen or you could use a white pen.

The mixture you make will colour a few pieces of card so have some
spare stamped images ready.
Add more powder to the gel to make a darker colour.
Just experiment, you can't go wrong.


Use a wide flat brush to apply the gel
P. S. you will find some extra pictures on Woodware Witterings I was fascinated by the technique! Dorothy

Having seen this in the flesh I know how shiny it is! Lovely made up into a card.
