I used the colours from this week's Colour Throwdown - CTD#322 - I think they're just right for a Christmas tree. I don't use these stamps enough, it was fun getting out these old sets and making the layers for the tree. I used the two largest circles from Dainty Doilies to make the bottom four layers and the top layers are a mixture of both sets. This is so easy to make. I used an eggcup for the base of the tree and there's a convenient hole in the bottom through which I pushed a wooden skewer. To keep the tree steady I used blu tac around the dowel. Then I cut the straw into ½" pieces and started by putting one of the pieces over the dowel. I used my Cropadile to punch the holes in the centre of the circles. Then it was simply straw, circle and repeat. At the top I added a golden star which I adhered to the dowel with hot glue. Here are some more photos of my 3D tree.
I have to apologise for the photos - it was really dark this afternoon (Saturday) and these are the best I could do.
At the time of typing this post (Saturday) I haven't managed to make anything for the other challenges, and as we are all rather under the weather I'm not sure I'll get chance. That's all for now.
