I wasn't going to join in with this weeks Out of a Hat Creations challenge as I didn't have anything suitable, but I picked up this little wooden Christmas tree on Sunday from the PaperArtsy stall and thought it would do perfectly.
Obviously it's nothing stunning but I wanted to play more with the crackle technique but on wood, so I gave this a go to see the effects. I used London red for the base, guacamole for the tree and pumpkin soup for the star. I used treasure gold and enhanced some of the crackle, but unfortunately you can't really see it on the photo. I then stamped my Stampotique cube of mini Christmas ornaments, cut them out, coloured them with Adirondack pens and stuck them on.
