ATC Coins - Funny birds

Welcome to my first inspiration piece for our Country View Challenge hosted by the lovely Debs. She has chosen Artist Trading Coins as the theme (AT Coins are 2.5" diameter circles).

I used a piece of paper I had used with Prima Bloom sprays and the Tando Creative Leaves masks for my background.

The small birds are from the Birds of Paradise STAMPlorations stamp set and the cute ostrich head is from Katzelkraft (Ostrich - SOLO088). I coloured all the images with water based pens.

To take the photo I placed the ATCs on a piece of card I coloured with Distress Oxide inks applied in overlapping streaks. I thought it funny the way the Birds of Paradise are looking up at the Ostrich, either with envy or alarm!

Now it's over to you and I can't wait to see what you make... Remember that if you enter our Country View Challenge, you could win a £20 voucher to spend on new crafty supplies, so don't wait up!

Thanks for coming by,
I am entering the Addicted to Stamps, and SSS Wednesday challenges.
