The 2nd day of Christmas...

As usual I started this weekly challenge a week late so THIS week we should have been on the 2nd day.... So now I have caught up as the next challenge starts on Sunday! Here are my Two Turtle Doves.
Same BG as before...I think I will stick with this one all through to give some continuity between the pieces; but the doves are ivory velvet. I stamped the wings with copper Brilliance ink ( not sure if it is meant to work on fabric but it seems to have done!)

The leaves and branches are from scraps of felt and fabric that I have about (!) and then I machine doodled the skinny branches! Just a few red glass beads which I think give it a little lift and done!

Now I look at the 2 side by side I am wondering whether I should have done some work into the sky or whether I like the space..... I have also started to think about whether I will actually do 7 swans and 12 Lords when the time comes or just show 1 or 2 of them.

I would also like to add a big thank you for all your good wishes! I am feeling heaps better now but get tired quite quickly! Just a shame it had to be in the holidays.
