Simon Says Monday Challenge - Tissue Paper

Hello my friends!

Even though most of you might not even have noticed my absence in blogland I would like to apologize for not posting anything in so long. I have been frantically mailing out cards and gifts to Europe and have been busy with general holiday preparations. But today I would like to enter a card in the current Simon Says Monday challenge where we are supposed to use tissue paper. Put on your shades - my card is bright!

I had so much fun tearing tissue paper in rainbow colors and gluing it on a piece of watercolor paper with Modge Podge thinned with water. Then I cut it into strips and glued it onto a black card. I added a large star out of silver mirror paper and a smaller star out of gold glitter paper. When I am ready to send this card I will decide if I want add a greeting or not.

I was totally inspired by the fantastic tutorial by Anna-Karin! You should check it out! I can't wait to try out some of her ideas/techniques! Now to find the time...

Warm wishes,

Dies: WPlus9 (stars)

This card is brilliant. Love your concept and it looks great without any sentiment added to it. I have been so busy all year long making Christmas cards I forgot I was supposed to actually do something with them! I think they may get received a bit late this year..Lol. Hugs Mrs A.

My kids did this on jars to make candle holders when they were in kindergarten. Great way to bring bold colors softly to a card.
