ATC Coins - Serious Birds

For my second inspiration piece for the Country View Challenge on the theme of AT Coins, chosen by Debs, I have chosen to keep with the bird them. If you missed the first set, my "funny" birds you can find them here).
I find my "serious" birds equally funny and I hope they will make you smile too!

For my background I used a Gelli Printed tissue paper made with Paper Artsy Fresco paints and the Random Circles stencil by Tando Creative. Tissue paper is great with Gelli printing because being thin the paper can be pressed to pick all the paint up off the Gelli plate and it acquires a sturdiness in the process that renders it easier to use in projects.

The birds are from the Lost Coast Designs Big Anthropomorph Birds set and have been stamped with black Memento ink.

Unused as I am to this small size, I quite like the result and the AT Coins were, after a long time spent scratching my  head, very quick to make.

Thanks for coming by,
I am entering the Paper Artsy,  SSS Wednesday, Penny Black and more and Craft Stamper TIMI challenges.
