Q is for ....

Morning All

Not very nice outside today, strong winds and rain here. 

Enjoyed yesterday doing a bit of watercolour painting and 
made this for the next challenge with

I am keeping with my idea of using Tags 

I found a free digi black and white  Clip Art picture of a Quail which I downloaded 
and used my watercolour pens to colour in. 

Used Color Burst paints to make the background having 
"masked" off the bird

Then added grass

Die cut letter Q and the definition mounted onto the 
same colour card stock as the letter Q.

Finally added raffia 

Bingo  Q is for Quail :) 

I use to keep Quail many years ago - so sweet when they hatch out of 
the eggs - the young quail look like little bumble bees. 

I would like to enter it for the following 


Thank you for popping in 
keep safe and warm

  1. This is a really unique and beautiful quail. You colored it so well, and I really liked how you die cut your letter. What I like most is, I'm fairly certain this will be the only quail we'll see for the Q challenge.

    I really enjoyed your back story, too. It brought the image to life for me.

  2. I love your painting of the quail and the beautiful background you created. Your comment about the young quail being like bumble bees made me smile, I get some very odd images in my head sometimes! Have a great day, Cara x
