The Craft Barn Alpha/Dictionary Challenge -- Q

This time on The Craft Barn, the letter is Q, so I have chosen Q for Quail. I already had an image on my computer from when I made my fabric A-Z of birds. I made the background with crumpled printed tissue paper. When it was dry I painted it with white gesso. I then used three shades of distress stains and applied them to the tissue paper. I then sprayed with water to blend the colours. The quail was then put on his rock with some grass at the base.
