Tim Holtz tag for October: Trick or Treat

Here my version of my tag for the
Tim Holtz challenge of the 12 tags.
You find the original tag and 
all technique explanations on the
Here is my tag, not with the skull,
but with the crazy birds.I just love them.
For the background I used some of the Tim Holtz
embossing paper.I sanded it and the letters popped up.
The background taki colored around the edges with
black sooth ink and a blending tool.
For the birds I colored two pieces of manilla apaper with
purple and orange.Then I used it to stamp the birds on.
With the thinlits I cut out the birds. On the orange bird,purple wings
and on the purple bird came an orange wing.
The eyes are cut out of white paper and colored with a
yellow marker.
When I added the spider to the ribbon, I noticed
the spiderweb on the background. Just the right spot!

and each bird has a little treat bag
for the sweets.

The sentiment is fromSimple Sayings and stamped
on orange paper with black archivalink.

This is Tim's tag.

Thanks for looking.
Have a creative day!

Your crazy birds are awesome. Love your background. I have these stamps but am too intimidated to use then. I want them to stand out like you did but I don't think I have it in me.
