Mixed Media Monday - Home Sweet Home

The talented Marie is guest hosting on Mixed Media Monday this week, and she has chosen "home, sweet home" as the challenge prompt. Once again, I'm struggling for time so it's another ATC. You'll need to use your imagination a little, because my scanner hates anything that is at all 3-D, so the scan isn't the best. The background is done with a page from an old book, distressed with gesso and distress inks. The house is chipboard, covered with a piece of paper that I stamped and then distressed. I just cut a piece of chipboard for the post for the bird house to sit on. The bird is covered with some rusted paper, and I added a strip of grosgrain ribbon down the side.
