Things with wings

Morning - There is a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and the theme is Things With Wings so I have used this cute twosome called Birds couple .

I die cue a piece of wood effect paper from Doodlebug using a stitched scalloped edge die and positioned it towards the branch.

I coloured the birds with copics - 
Bird - BV00, BV02 & BV13
Girl Bird - Y11, Y08, Y35 & Y17

I then used Prisma colour pencils over the top to make the birds look fluffy! 
PC 915 Lemon Yellow, PC 916 Canary Yellow & PC 1003 Spanish Orange. 
PC 956 Lilac, PC 1008 Parma Violet & PC 1007 Imperial Violet. 

I also used these prismacolours -
Leaves - PC989 Chartreuse, PC912 Apple Green & PC 909 Grass Green 
Heart -  PC 926 Carmine Red & PC 924 Crimson Red
Feet & Beak - PC 935 Black, PC 1056 70% Warm Grey, PC 1054 50 % Warm Grey & PC 1051 20% Warm Grey. 
Branch - PC 997 Beige, PC 941 Light Umber, PC 945 Sienna Brown & PC 946 Dark Brown.

I used a a stamp to make the greeting and added a matching red heart. Finally I used a white POSCA pen to add some highlights on the birds. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges - 

I really love the way the pencil adds detail over the copics and thinks these little Birds look very cute!!
