I've Cracked It Too

Here is my entry to this weeks Lot's To Do challenge which is 'cracking'.
I've used the acrylic paint and PVA technique and it's worked out very nicely on my sticky canvas. I tried it last week on mountboard and it ended up in the bin.
I've used Ranger acrylic in pesto as the base coat, a layer of Bostic PVA, then a layer of white acrylic on top.
We've got a lovely sunny day today so this dried while I was cleaning the kitchen. (DH did a lovely full English but this means that the kitchen then needs re-decorating lol)
I've stamped TH's tree's and reindeer in distress inks over the top, and swiped Pine Needles around the sides.
Does this mean it is time to start on the Christmas Cards :o)
Thanks very much for looking x
