Reflective Christmas Tree

Challenge 30 at Linda's and this week it's time for Reflective Imagery which is on page 55 of the book Compendium of Curiosities II by Tim Holtz.

I decided to make a Christmas-y scene using an empty Velveeta Cheese box. I found some Christmas papers with trees on them and after applying a generous schmearing of Inkssentials Glue and Seal, I then applied Tim's Distress Stickles Dry Glitter Clear Rock Candy. The houses are all from Dyan's Right Up Your Street stamp set and I also applied the Dry Glitter Rock Candy to the roofs. The tiny tree is from Tim's Woodlands collection and it ALSO has Dry Glitter Rock Candy applied to it after I applied Sistress Stain in Crushed Olive to the tree. In the background is Tim's best (in my opinion!) release from Summer CHA and that's the little battery operated light! I love the soft glow it gives and how it makes the Dry Glitter sparkle! For the actual challenge part, there are two boys who have picked out their perfect Christmas tree and are taking it home on their sled!

Hi Sue, This is so cute! I love the fragment with the vintage image. Isn't it funny how you start seeing boxes and recyclables in a whole new way?! Hope all is well with you!
