I thought I would share a quick little project with you. It is a very simple Rosette Turkey, the turkey itself is the result of a search on the keyword "turkey" I then picked one that I liked, and printed it 4 times (why 4? Well, I wanted to add dimension so I broke the image into the following pieces:
- Base image - colored in with colored pencils, what can I say, I still have a young child :-)
- Feathers and Body and Feet - colored again, but this time added glitter to the pieces that were going to be visible.... as you can see in the picture, I definitely played with the layers here, and cut a few of the feathers out with the next layer I cut.
- Wings - colored and glittered, and threw in a few feathers for good measure
- Cute little face - colored and glittered
So this is how the turkey was born... My sister-in-law doesn't understand and cannot imagine why I would go to all the trouble... Yes, I have a wonderful family who believes that I am completely batty to spend my time crafting... You'd think there would be one of them who would support me? But I digress...
For the Rosette, I punched a Martha border and then used my Martha Score Pad to score the lines... folded and made it into a circle... Ok, you got me... I didn't measure how long my strip was, probably 6 - 8 inches, because I have a lot of strips that length.
I then used a large scallop punch (Marvy Giga Punch 3") as my base and mounted everything on top.
For the card, I created a lip and used the turkey to hold it closed. I was experimenting, as I included a gift card with it. This little fella was part of a gift basket.
I hope you are enjoying day, and cannot wait to see all the fun turkey cards everyone has made!
