Gobble gobble!!! It's almost Thanksgiving time, so I decided to make a card for my In-Laws since we won't be with them for the holiday. The technique is a little hard to see so I took lots of photos so hopefully you can.
|I wanted a turkey die, but there's not one, SOOOO I made my own...sort of. I die cut Tim's Sizzix Mini Feather Quill and the Mini Mirror. It you flip the mirror upside down, I see a turkey body! DON'T YOU?!!! He he he!!! Ok, so it's sort of cheesy, but I love it! Never be afraid of using your dies for totally different things than what they are originally for. They cost you money, so use them up!!!|
|So then I did the technique on the make shift turkey! I also used an old Maya Road transparency to use as part of his body.|
|Gobble gobble gobble!!! I gave him a face!|
|I stamped on a background for my card, and then used the technique again.|
|Inking and words finished up this very simple card.|
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
