Holiday Home Decor and a Cardinal


Hello, today I am showing you a small Mixed Media Piece I did as inspiration for the Challenge at the All That Stickles blog.  I made this and have it up for sale in my booth (#10) "The Two Crazy Crafters"in the Alfred Indoor Flea Market at 4822 County Road 17, Alfred, Ontario, Canada.




Ok so I am now known as one of the TWO Crazy Crafters locally, and I am also a frugal crafter/artist.  I had picked up this small balsa wood sign at Value Village a while back and I was saving it for a painting.  I used it for the current challenge at the ATS blog for Holiday Home Decor.  It started as plain wood, which I covered with a cotton paper from Dollarama.  I then stamped on Musical Notes from Stampin'Up! with Archival Sepia Ink from Ranger.  I drew the bird and branch with pine cones in pencil.  Using Derwent Inktense Colouring pencils I coloured the image.  I also used Micron Pigment ink pens in brown and black for some of the details.  To make the snow I used a Snow Writer from Deco Art.  The bling was made from Stickles by Ranger in: Christmas Red, Black Diamond and Gold.

I hope you enjoyed your visit today and please go to the ATS blog and participate in the challenge.  Thanks for stopping by.
