Autumn Gobbler

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. 

A Couple Details:
  • 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!
