Woodware – Make Christmas Special with Metallic F/x – Take 2

Here is my second attempt at making Christmas special with Dreamweaver’s Metallic F/x


I have used Jane’s Snowflake Flower Clear Magic stamp, I think that it is one of my favourites this year.


first I stamped it with my watermark pad and then I added two colours of Metallic F/x Navajo Sky and Golf Finch


Then I brushed off the excess with the soft blending brush and used the corner rounder to finish off the layer.


something that I have not done for a very long time is to use my Watermark pad just to stamp with, I remember being very excited by being able to do this many years ago when the pads first came on the market. How brilliant is it that you can stamp with one ink pad to make a background without having to find an ink pad that will match? Oh simple things!


I added some plain 15mm organza ribbon and attached the panel to the card.


Then I tied on some dotty organza


The greeting is from the same stamp set and I have edged the panels with the gold finch Metalic F/x. Just run your card along a Watermark pad and brush the powder on.

Make Christmas Special with Metallic F/x

This week on Woodware Witterings we are using Dreamweaver Metallic F/x this is a very high quality Mica powder in a stunning range of colours. The pot contains nothing but high quality mica pigment, no fillers!

So here is what I have come up with.


the photograph is not very good, sorry.


first I have used Dreamweaver copper embossing paste and while it is wet I have flicked on the powder. The stencil is one of the new ones from Stampendous Holly Scroll Stencil.


When I had enough powder on I heated the paste to dry it.


once it is dry you can brush off the excess powder.


I just love the bubbly effect!


For the background I used the watermark pad through the Large Damask stencil. I have added the Metallic F/x


I ran the Happy Christmas Stencil through my Sizzix machine and then inked it with the Watermark Pad and


added the Purple Satin and Glacier Metallic F/x I have used the same two colours throughout.


I added the blue around the layer of card. simply run the card along the ink pad.


it looks good on the card, but has not shown up on the final photograph.


I wrapped the ribbon around th card, then added a knot of ribbon to finish off the panel.
