A real Tweet!

I spotted this beauty in my garden the other day..
Think its a rare Houndtooth Crested Blueback.
Predominately found in warmer climates, because we've had a few hotter spells here I'm guessing it may have got lost, but what a treat to see one up close!

{materials used: Canvas fabric, Gesso, Garden Wire, Broken china and Spiced Marmalade distress inks, Houndstooth & Chicken Wire background stamps from the artistic stamper, brads, spacer beads and screw head snaps}
