A Little Bit of Beatrix Potter: ATC's

Sorry, I haven't finished the 'Fairy Castle' but I have made these ATC's for a Quirky forum swap. The theme was animals and I remembered that (squeaking madly) bag of Beatrix Potter toppers I had a few weeks ago (free with a crafty magazine) still unopened and thought, ah! I'll use those. The only trouble was, I didn't have anything for the background, so I quickly drew my own and came up with a background that continued through both ATC's.
I wasn't sure about them at first, but I think they're okay, they've kinda grown on me now. There's a bit of 3D-ing going on. I coloured the background with my NEW ProMarkers (whoohoo!) but then, scanned the finished drawing through my computer and printed it out. Why? (mainly because I'd only drawn it on paper (Tesco Finest) and the Promakers had bled through it a little. I then did a bit more touching up with the colour and added a dragonfly and a couple of butterflies. I hope who ever gets my swap likes them...or maybe they're looking at them right now and thinking,
'Oh no, I hope I don't get those!'
