pssst...we are having a World of Borders sale!
Various borders up for grabs, some for as little as a $1!  

Today's spooktacular featured project is by me, LCDesigner Leigh S-B ;0)
I'm back today with another altered wooden BOO! creation but this time I'm featuring the Master of Horror, Alfred Hitchcock himself, and paying homage to his clawesome movie classic The Birds! 

 I typed up sections of attack scenes from The Bird's screenplay in Photoshop CS6 for the background of this altered project.  This movie was filmed in black and white so I only used black ink for all my stamping and distressing.
The wooden pieces were painted with black acrylic, the images stamped with black Versafine ink and Black Soot Distress Ink was used to grunge up the edges.
I used the following stamps:
Lost Coast Designs
Filmstrip Border
Tall Trees
Perspective Floor

Carmen's Veranda 
Alfred Hitchcock
Flying Birds
ATC Birds in Trees
