Crow Ornaments


My inspiration bird a raven that was sitting on my grape arbor this summer.  We don't get many ravens here, mostly crows, and I was really happy to snap his pic before he left.


Needle felted black merino wool and blue calypso angelina fibers made into a constructed cloth.

The same black needle felted wool and the back side of the angelina cloth which consists of black shred and forest floor angelina fibers.


ATC constructed of peltex, double sided adhesive, with kona PFD fabric, bird body consists of black merino felt, and the wings I made of layers of angelina fibers. 

The back side of the crow ornament I will cover it with vintage black german glass glitter when I'm finished with the stitching.  The backround colors are from Tsukineko Walnut Inks - Cherry Blossom and Adirondaks Inks - Butterscotch.  I made the card during today's live Ustream  You can view the recorded video at my Ustream link, click the previous link or do a search for kbaxterpackwood!
