Birds of a Feather

Even more images from The Octopode Factory in this little piece I have done as Guest Designer for this weeks challenge on Lily's Challenge Blog.  The theme was 'Things With Wings'.

I used digital images, printed out on thin card and coloured with Marvey Le Plume Alcohol Ink Brush pens.  I then trimmed out the images ready for mounting.

The base is an old ribbon reel which I have covered with printed papers and embellished with black AB flat backed gems.

The birdes have been attached using florists wire which has been bent as desired.

Love the images especially their oversized feet and shoes !
