- The background is stamped using Anita's Pearl Metallic paint. I couldn't find the Ranger paint dauber shown in the video but found this paint to work fine when applied with a makeup sponge. After drying, I went over it with several colors of Ranger Distress inks. I've experimented with Stampin' Up! Classic inks since they are also dye inks and they work OK, not quite as good as Ranger. I found the colors brighter and harder work work into the crevices.
- I also experimented with several types of paper and preferred a cheaper quality photo paper. I'm not sure where we bought it - Walmart maybe. It isn't that great for printing but because it is thin and shiny, it really works great for this technique.
- I did the tree much like the video except I had no tree stamp so I just stamped some Mellow Moss cardstock with a couple of backgrounds stamps to add interest, trimmed to a triangle shape and then went over with Peeled Paint distress ink.
The chipboard 'snow' on the bottom is a piece of scrap chipboard leftover from shaped chipboard cutouts.
