Theme Thursday Challenge - ATC with a Bird

This is my entry for Theme Thursday Challenge this week. We are to make and ATC using a bird as the main image or in the background. I decided to use the bird as the main image. I had this ATC sitting on my work table with a "Citrol Solve National Geographic" background I had made weeks ago. [You apply Citrol Solve cleaner in the concentrate form onto the National Geographic magazine pages. Let sit for a half hour or so, then tear the magazine apart and let the pages dry. It moves the ink around on the page and makes cool backgrounds. You can find the citrol solve at healthfood stores in their cleaning department area.] Any hoo here is my bird, nestler is anyone who "makes a nest."

Great ATC Elizabeth! I love that background, but although I've made them before, I didn't know you left them for so long. I shall try my next batch your way and see what the difference is! Thanks for sharing! =)

This is special. It just glows with colour and beautiful artwork. Take a bow! A standing ovation from me.

It's late here in Oz - nearly midnight - and I wasn't paying attention. I left a comment on your most beautiful picture but it didn't go through and I didn't see the note regarding whether or not the comments are held back. Just in case, I love your card. The colours are glowing and the whole effect is exquisite. I love it - a lot.

What a beautiful ATC. The background paper is so abstract and so unique.
Did you soak just some pages in the solution?
