Gorgeous aren't they? And I painted over some old text for the background (it was 'The Darling Buds of May' if I remember rightly)
Then I added my fave stamp of the moment, from Dark Room Door. I love it, love it, love it. It's just perfect for backgrounds.
Then I added the birds. I think these are mostly crows but I could be wrong. They could be rooks or a number of others but for the purpose of my art these are crows and rooks :-)
