Antique Victorian Bird Scrap

The original of this large scrap trading card was in damaged condition, missing part of the bottom portion and very closely trimmed.  I added more room on the sides and repaired the bottom leaf section as well as missing portions of the bird's plumage.

The dark red bird with dark background is the original coloration.  Such a beautiful bird - I thought he could also use a bit of lightening up for Spring, along with some different variations of leaf and background colors.
