Traditional Christmas at Flonzcraft Vintage Stamping Challenges

Good morning, where did the weekend go? I can't believe its Monday already and its November too!! Eek it'll soon be Christmas and with that in mind we've got a Traditional Christmas theme at Flonzcraft Vintage Stamping Challenges. You don't have to make a vintage project, just a traditional Christmas project: a card,tag, altered art project ... what ever you fancy. As always my lovely teamies have created some amazing projects to inspire you and of course there is a fab prize of a $20 voucher from our sponsor Flonzcraft!

For my DT project I'ave made a little wall hanging using MDF hearts that I painted with pale blue acrylic paint . I stamped the images, both from Flonzcraft and the sentiment which is from Chocolate Baroque on whhite card using sepia versafine and glued them to the hearts, next I then smothered the hearts with Kroma Crackle. Once it was dry, I gave it a coat of Maimeri Matte Gel and sprinkled over a layer of glamour dust, the sparkle doesn't show up too well but you can see the gorgeous crackle better in this pic

I edged the hearts with tea dye distress ink and then a little treasure gold. I added lots of embellies, some glittered die cut snowflakes, ribbons, buttons, bows, die cut kraft holly vines, a kraft reindeer and some tattered pine cones too. Once everthing was dry I used my hot glue gun to fix the hearts together.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

2 Sisters: Christmas no red or green
Allsorts: Christmas Cheer
Aud Sentiments: Christmas Sentiments
Crafty Calendar: all things Christmas
Crafty Ribbons: anything goes with ribbon
Really Reasonable Ribbon: Christmas/winter plus ribbon
Sugar Creek Hollow: anything vintage
Totally gorjuss: anything goes with snow
Winter Wonderland: blue and white

Well its time for me to go to work so thanks for visiting, have a good day
