Pink Birds Postcard

I have had really up and down days, but I wanted to be doing something so I tried something new with this postcard. The background is collaged dark green paper, then I put a wash over it. Next I used a stencil to put Bead Gel in the shape of birds. After that dried, I painted them, sketched in a few leaves and the outline of mountains. Mixed media with paper, acrylic paints, bead gel, Stabilo pencils, oil pastels.

These birds live in the high mountains of an imaginary country, 
somewhere far, far away. 
And this postcard goes in the mail tomorrow.

Come see my latest postcards I've received on Postcards Buffet!
