Something completely different: Twinchies 3: birds

Thank you for all the good wishes for John. He had the op yesterday (toe amputation) and amazingly is now on his way home - that was ok'ed because I'm here to look after him. So I've been waiting this afternoon to hear details of when he'd be home, so I've felt a bit like a lost sheep. I decided to do a bit of crafting and chose something small (although actually I find that inchies and twinchies can take as long to make as cards!)

Twinchies 3 challenge on Something Completely Different this week is: 'birds'. When I did challenge 1: 'wings', I used a couple of lovely little birdie stamps - wish I'd done butterflies then, so this time I had to have a think as to what else I could do.

This is also good for this week's Mixed Media Monday challenge: 'feathered friends'.

I remembered that I have this seagull stamp and a nice sea/sand/marshland stamp, so I used the two together, masking the seagull one. The colouring is copics. The stamps are part of a set from rubbadubbadoo.
