A Very Vintage Christmas - Winner and Top 3

Hello everyone!

     Laura here to bring you the winner and Top 3 from my 'Very Vintage Christmas' Challenge.

   
  Thank you to all who entered this challenge - I am so glad you all embraced the lack of red and green and designed such gorgeous neutral toned creations. This was such a difficult decision because all of the entries were amazing and very beautiful! I loved visiting all of you!




My choice for winner of the 'Very Vintage Christmas' challenge is -



I really love what Ana has created here. A beautiful altered box - It has a gorgeous vintage feel yet has some lovely contemporary touches too. I adore the texture she has added, the sewing detail and the layers. It looks wonderfully festive! She describes it as 'Christmas Chaos' on her blog - If that is so, then for the first time ever I have found a chaos that I love!





And my Top 3 (in numerical order)

No 20 - 2amscrapper


This is such a gorgeous tag! I love the layers the delicate detail of the lace and buttons. I also really like the fact that it still looks so festive without having used lots of traditional Christmas images.



This is such an amazing creation - so much work and detail has gone into into this and the result is beautiful. I love the use of the gilding flakes and the distress effect gives a stunning vintage look. 


No. 40 - Stempelomi

.
 This is such a beautifully designed festive tag! The layers of inks and stamps all make up a wonderful tag. The vintage text is gorgeous too and I love the way the flower has been created.


Well done to the winners - grab your badges and we hope you will display them on your blog!
