Linda, you did not leave me your email address in the comment section so I cannot answer you directly. http://collagesisthars.typepad.com/ The directions for the background for the holiday cards are here. I did it with the Collage Sisthars at their last meeting. The papers are Mixed Media Madness. The 1" square that you see on two of the postcards is done with paint scraping for the background. You can find directions for that on my website.
The holiday postcard done with the guy with the glasses and big head - the stamp is from zettiology.com. Happy Holidays!
