Today is day one and for my project I created a fairly simple little tag to share with you. It can be used to put on a gift or to exchange with someone or just to display. I plan to display mine as I love to decorate for holidays & I seem to have a shortage of Thanksgiving Decorations.
Please meet TOM the Turkey Tag :)
To make this tag I used the turkey that I found on page 49 the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. I cut it(and all the corresponding layers) at 3". I used white cardstock so that I could color it as I wanted. The head, gobbler and feet are done with Adorondak paint dabbers in bright colors(Red Pepper & Sunshine Yellow). The body is done in multiple applications of Tim Holtz Distressed Stamp Ink in Frayed Burlap. I used Tim Holtz Distress ink for Tom's tail feathers as well. That color is Spiced Marmalade. The shadow behind Tom is Tim Holtz Distress Peeled Paint. Take note that Tom's little wing flaps open back and forth, not that he could actually fly bc we all know that turkeys CAN'T fly, but he likes to show it off! The tag I cut at 4.5 inches, from the Sentimentals cartridge. I used a small American Craft's stamp that is actually a Victorian flourish for the background. I've used this technique before & love how it comes out. I used Tim Holtz Distress Walnut Stain for this stamp. To finish off the tag I *attempted* to trace Tom the turkey with embossing powder. I used my embossing pen & Martha Stewart embossing powder. Some parts of it came out the way I wanted, others I'm not thrilled with, but it's there...So here's Tom the Turkey Tag. :) Hope you've enjoyed and please come back tomorrow to see even more turkey fun!
