Altered Postcard

I bought a set of plain white bird postcards with simple bird illustrations.  This one is the Blue Footed Booby from the Galapagos Islands.  I wanted to alter it to add a little more zazz.  I added some text from a french vintage dictionary, and then the entry for Darwin from an old Oxford. I created a new wing for the bird from another dictionary page. a bit of Porfolio oil pastels in green and pink toadd some colour,  and a postage stamp with a frog fossil is the finishing touch.
