Tag and ATC swap

I've recently joined in with another tag and atc swap and they are now on their way to their new homes.
Here's the ones I created - the theme was 'birds'

 tag one, Fresco background, the grasses stamped in the background are from Lost Coast Designs. the bird is from one of Lin's new sets for Paperartsy. the twigs for the nest were supplied by my other friend Lin, and which I've been hoarding!
 tag two, Stencil Girl stencil, and some shading with Fresco's, the bird is one of Dina Wakley's scribbly birds, with some hand-shading for the feathers.
 was quite pleased how the scribbly bird turned out.
 atc's .  crackle backgrounds.  I did write down what colours I used for this, but can't find where I put it...the one on the left is Antarctic on top...
Dina's scribbly bird on the left, and Harry (Lost Coast scruffy bird) on the right.
 Used Dusty Teal and Antarctic for the feathering...
Hope whichever of my swappees gets these, likes them!

Our next theme has been announced - watch this space!

These are all smashing Helen! The Lost Coast Designs grasses are fab....so delicate! Love the feathers (and colours) on the second tag and the crackle and both birds on the ATCs are great. Both those birds are so cute...even Harry!

These are wonderful, Helen - brilliant birdy creations all the way. And you've just reminded me that I started a couple of journal pages with that birds on branches stencil - need to find somewhere for them to go. I love the scribbly bird on the crackle background ATC - my favourite, probably.
