You can find it almost anywhere depending on what you see.... When I was looking for inspiration I was in the mood for something would smack me right between the eyes!

A couple of weeks ago I was trying to get back in the stamping mode after a 2 week vacation with my Hubby. I received a new Paper Craft magazine and what was in the mag at the very end - how about some awesome Halloween tags by Tim Holtz! So I pulled out my virgin Tim set (we all have stamps that have not seen ink right- it' can't just be me - but if it is don't tell my hubby) and started to play.

Raven Meets Skeleton

Close up of Skeleton

I wanted the Raven to look like he's carrying off the Skeleton but I think it looks more like the Skeleton is petting the Raven's beak(so okay it's a kinder, gentler Halloween card) ...

The Rave and Skeleton were stamped on Grunge Board. Cuttlebug embossing folder was used for the harlequin design and some Stazon was used to add more detail to the bat charm.

Thanks for the inspiration Tim!

Holy cow, Batman, Kat has done it again with Halloween inspiration this time. Love the idea of the raven picking up the skeleton. How 'bout cutting the skeleton and reassembling him in the raven's beak to make him look like a rag doll?!!
Love your work on the wings tag too. You inspired me to work on wood. Merci.
