Three Muses Challenge- Birds of a Feather

These little guys were originally created as a set of notecards for Christmas presents. This morning we woke to snow--AGAIN!-- and when I saw the theme for this week I immediately thought of birds in winter, and that led my back to these cold little birdies.

The birdies were Googled and altered with photoshop filters and brushes, the beautiful little frame around each birdie is from rubyblosson and the background is from E B Christina , both at Textures for Layers on Flickr. This is a great group, all the textures and backgrounds are free to use, and the creators love it when you link back to them (I don't know how to do that yet, but when I learn, I will)or leave a copy of what you've made for them to see. The rest is blending and brushes. I LOVE brushes!

Thanks for stopping by.
