"Spatter and Spark" behind the scenes: take 03

Mama Crow's house had few but important restraints: it should have a wide window from where you can see Spatter and Spark bouncing outside. The window would use most of the real state available in the picture, but I still needed to fit in Mama and Hubert. To add character to their cozy house, I included some decorations and furnishing in tune with a crow's taste: shiny and colorful!
