Blackbird's Halloween Ball


This is my digital 4x6 postcard for the Sunday Postcard Art theme (Blackbird). Artist paper was used for the background with 3 different layer filters added. The blackbird and mask are rubber stamped images (Character Constructions) on white paper (background erased out). I added swirls , pumpkins and made bats digitally for fun!

  20. I love the way the blackbird looks slightly snooty with his beak in the air. He knows he is a far superior bird! I have been trying to teach my children the names of birds as part of forest school and a blackbird was my first choice-easy to remember and I love them! Thanks for your lovely comment today. My blog banner is fairly new but I am about to change it again for Halloween I think!
