|I used a copyright-free 50s image as the main photo, as I wanted a retro feel|
|I also stamped on the centre red band of the tree (which was plain) and added baubles - some were the chipboard elements, and the rest were little metal hearts cut from an old necklace. All 'antiqued' with Rock Candy crackle paint.|

I 'antiqued' the chipboard pieces using Tim Holtz's Distress Crackle Paint in Rock Candy (which is clear, and a couple of coats give a lovely spun sugar sparkle - very vintage).
A little on the cute side for me, maybe, but the 50s feel definitely saves them. Nice and colourful, no?
