Bird People ATCs

It's been ages since I last made an ATC,
but when I saw this 'Bird People' swap
on Marion from Germany's blog
it got me interested again!
In Marion's words -
"The idea is to mix birds and people to create bird people creatures" 

For the backgrounds I used bits of ripped pages from an
 old Yellow Pages Advertiser which was headed for
the recycle bin, and some old book text.
I painted over the backgrounds with a couple of
layers of paint - white, then gold.
Then stuck on the images - once I found
suitable bird images (harder than I thought)
Added some words.
(I definitely prefer Daniel Craig with his own head though!)
(oops, the colour isn't this bright in real life!)
I had this leaf on my desk left over from my
Tim tag and it seemed to go.
I finished them off with a bit of rubber stamping. 
There is no sign up date as such for this swap,
but the ATCs must be with Marion before June 1st.
Thanks for looking :)

It's a good thing to see ATCs again Sherry, for they seem to be 'out' a bit. That's why my friend and I have decided to have a swap every couple of months. Love your set, you did a fab job in creating yours! Hugs, Ira x
