Challenge - Alfred Hitchcock - The Birds

I am so happy to do this challenge! There were so many things one can do for this.  I chose The Birds.  After watching a few clips, I wanted to go with a black and white theme, with the only color as red.  I loved the scene where the birds amass on the jungle gym right before they attack the school children.  So ominous!  I tried to do a splatter, but unfortunately didn't have the right kind of straw.  So, instead I did a variation on spun sugar to splatter the red.  I like how it came out. (Note to self, get coffee straws!)

This will be the first time I played with the photos.  I think it helped enhance the stamping and show it better with less glare.

I LOVED doing the feather on my ring finger, and used the sunglasses because Tippy Hendron was so glamorous. I love how the feather hangs over the edge of the nail.

Detail of pinkey with feather stamping and red.

This is for the scene when the birds gather.
I had so much fun doing this.  Tell me what you think!
