Dream Valley Challenge 35 - Things with wings

This fortnight at Dream Valley we would like to see Things with Wings. 




















I wanted to make a birthday card for a friend who has a budgie called Bobby.  I used a pattern by Judith Maslen.  The budgie was coloured with Derwent Studio Pencils and the background was made using a large straight grid.  I also used a Martha Stewart border punch and some peel-offs.

This is stunning.
The budgie looks like it has been stamped and now drawn - amazing work.

Beautifully coloured Budgie, and lovely parchment background. Quite an unusual image these days. My dad used to keep budgies when I was a little girl. Jean x
