Ghostie "Boo" Bird ATC #1 for Day 1 of LCPtoC's Half-O-Ween!

We are celebrating Halloween in May over at Lost Coast Portal to Creativity.  Stop by every 2nd day from today until May 31st for lots of clawesome projects, get inspired, dig out your Halloween stamps and come join the party ;0)
A $15 shopping spree at Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda is up for grabs!

I gave you a teaser post yesterday and now here's a better look at Ghostie BOO Bird ATC #1!

Whimsical Flora is one of 8 large birdies in Lost Coast Designs newest stamp line, Whimsical Birds by Doris Arndt and we also have 2 sets of mini Whimsical Birds too!  She was stamped on Neenah cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, coloured with Copics and Prismacolor pencils and just the head was stamped a 2nd time.  I fussy cut her out and adhered the head with a pop dot and applied Judikins Diamond Glaze to her eyes for extra dimension and shine.  The yummy background was created with the fabulous Nuance Powders by Magenta now available in the Lost Coast Designs store.  I then stamped a Spiderwebs background in Tea Dye Distress Ink and I created the pale moon using a hole punch as a mask and Cloud White VersaMagic ink.  I then stamped the large and mini Cracked Tree in Onyx Black VersaFine ink and added shimmer and shine to the branches with Perfect Pearl (Perfect Pearls powder) applied with water and a paint brush.  I also stamped the Cracked Grass and Sky with Brilliance Platinum Planet and the "boo" text was stamped with Old Type Writer Alphabet set in both lower and upper case, outlined with a black Micron pen and coloured with black Prismacolor.

You can see the Perfect Pearls shimmer in this photo!
