Damask Turkey Card

Please welcome back, for the last time, my favorite turkey stamp...yaaaaay...!!!
( my head that sounded a lot like an intro on the Muppet Show!  Oops, showing my age!  The sad part is that this is not even my stamp, I borrowed it from my sister.)

Okay, back to the card at hand! Obviously, it features the same turkey stamp as The Heart of Autumn and Turkey Tag cards and Mr. Tom is stamped, colored, and Glossy Accented-up the exact same way. What makes this card special is the embossed chipboard frame and the oak and acorn medallion.

Just a Few Details:
  • I embossed a raw chipboard frame using Tim Holtz's Damask texture fade, then painted it with Burnt Umber acrylic paint, accented it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, and finally added a rough layer of Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint. To me, the result is reminiscent of tooled leather.
  • The oak and acorn image was stamped on kraft cardstock using StazOn Timber Brown. I then cut it out and accented with marker and Old Paper DI. I used Glossy Accents to pop the entire image and while the GA was still wet, I added Vintage Photo Distress Stickles to just the acorns. After everything was dry, I added a brass brad to the center, but it looked too shiny, so I used Copper and Silver Alcohol inks to knock the shine down, then added some Vintage Photo Distress Stickles to the tops for a tarnished, corroded appearance.
  • The crackle background was stamped with Brushed Corduroy Distress Stain for a watercolor effect.
