Trick or Treat

Looking around blogland, I am seeing many folk making inspirational Halloween projects.
So here goes with my first efforts of the season.
The stamped image is  the Steampunk Owl  from Stampendous, I did think he was just the right bird for this tag. This was painted with water colours and distress markers.
Corrogated  stripped and torn  paper from an old box, is the base painted,  with acrylics to match the next layer, which is a gelli plate creation.
I do experiment in batches so it would be hard to list the paints, masks etc.
I had a little piece of mesh netting to use for the tie and  bottom corner.

Its the second   Challenge  at   Tag Along  and  the theme is 'Birds'.
So he's flying off there to join the fun, as well as,
Addicted to Stamps and More whose current challenge is Anything goes.

Thank you for stopping by, your comments are always appreciated.
