A Vintage Christmas


When I met up with Lin, Helen & Emma in York, Lin handed me a bag of goodies and one of the items was part of a broom, like a witches broom.  So I cut it up and used it to cover this 4" x 6" wooden photo frame, which I painted first with fresco chocolate pudding.  I used my hot glue gun to glue it around the frame.


I coloured a piece of white card with tea dye distress ink and stamped the main TH image in saddle brown stazon.  I added a white Christmassy flower to the bottom right corner. I was going to add more items, but actually felt it didn't need it as I didn't want to cover up the broom twigs.

Our Creative Corner have a theme of a very vintage Christmas.

Arty Inklings have a theme of a crimble challenge.
