Halloween's over, so repeat after me...gobble, gobble!
Nothing quite says "Thanksgiving" like a vintage turkey image! I especially love this one because of the baskets of fruit he carries on his back. Such a beautiful image.
- The turkey is fussy cut and mounted on cardstock that has been woodgrain embossed. After it was embossed, I stained it with several colors of Distress Stain and then hit the high areas with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a foam blender. The effect is like weathered barn wood. The perfect background for barnyard poultry. :-)
- I've really been focusing on using up old supplies lately. The berry spray is a sticker that I have had FOREVER. There's still a few stickers left on the sheet, but I'm closing in!
