Bluetit and blossom

I recently won a trio of really beautiful bird stamps from the Crafty Individuals blog. Naturally they provided lots of inspiration in the form of the beautifully arty designs they are well known for,  but I decided for their first airing I should use each one in a very CAS way to get a feel for the beauty of the image. And I used the RSPB Handbook of British Birds to get my colouring as accurate as possible.


Here is the first, a blue tit on a sprig of blossom, coloured with pencils. I pencilled a very faint background around the image and softened it with a blending stump.

I am sharing this with

Make my Monday - something new (a brand new stamp)
Little Red Wagon - Lions and lambs (wild creatures) 
2 Crafty Critter Crazies - Anything Goes with a creature 
AAA Cards - a second entry to the One + Three challenge, hopefully correct this time!
This time I've used one stamped image, pencils, one matted layer and a sentiment but not the friends optional extra twist
