QKR - Things with Wings

This week's challenge at QKR Stampede is Things with Wings.  I chose this bluejay image available here.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  The beautiful digital paper is from Carina Gardner.  I used quite a bit of pastel chalks with this image to give that old look.  The fall leaves were cut with the Silhouette.  They are also chalked which really turned out nice, it just doesn't show in the photo.
