A Christmas Partridge Garland Handmade Card
We often forget how beautifully coloured our game birds are, the partridge is part of the pheasant family. This stunning Red-legged partridge was introduced to Britain from France. They are ground dwelling birds so a partridge in a pear tree is not a reality, just taken from the ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’ , but it makes a great design subject for cards etc. The ombre blues, grey and brown feathers just melt into each other, with black dotting around the neck and fabulous striped wings, this bird is captivating and handsome. All hand-painted he stands on a mossy log surrounded by autumn leaves and low hanging pears. A dark ombre grey background inside the garland makes the partridge and touches of snow stand out in this winter Christmas scene, with a few glass gems and silver glitter to add that extra sparkle.
