Halloween Bird

And so here he is after his make-over......



Little Blue Bird was painted with black Ranger alcohol ink. I rubbed some through his tail feathers (wearing disposable gloves of course!) to get that midnight blue effect.... 


....and stamped the orange and green flowers for a more Halloweeny look.....



....added a few bits to an old 'daggy' paper clip (see - NEVER throw anything away!!..lol)....


...I just love love LOvE Echo Park's Chillingsworth Manor...especially with a bit of Bling!


So - how's your Halloween Crafting coming along?
