STAMPlorations, a reminder

Afternoon everyone.
Just stopping by to remind you of this month's theme/sketch challenge over at STAMPlorations.
Here is my inspiration card for you using this month's theme.




I used the collage theme, cutting multiple Christmas tree images from tissue paper using one of the CUTplorations Trendy Trees dies an layering them onto a base panel of white card using watered down PVA glue. It gives the finished panel a translucent finish. I used this technique a lot with children when I was a teacher. You can create a fab abstract background with strips of tissue, but best keep the colours in a similar group, such as blues or reds, then cut out as required. We used to make calendars based on the four seasons, blues for winter, fresh green for spring etc. Four panels arranged in order in  window pattern, simples.
I simply stamped a greeting from the matching Trendy Christmas Trees set to finish.
 Please pop over to the main STAMPlorations site for more fab inspiration from the team and GDs and you can also find all Ts and Cs there too.

I'm joining in over at-
