Talk Turkey (SC189)

Today's Sketch Challenge was just rectangles aligned to the left side of the card. It was OK to flip it and have the rectangles aligned to the top. With this kind of sketch, you have to find a larger image or use patterned paper. You could also use several smaller stamps, but you need to be able to fill up a large amount of empty space on layer #3.

I got this turkey image from someone on through the "Pay It Forward" thread. People go there, read a list someone has posted, and try to be the first to "snag" one of the images from the list. The person who had posted the list acknowledges the "snag", and then they communicate through private messages. The "snagger" has to give an address to the list poster in order to get the stamped images. The "snagger" now has to post a list to allow someone else to snag one of their images. I did it a couple of times. When someone snags from you, you stamp the images with Black Stazon unless they request something else. Six 1/4 page pieces can be sent for $0.42 postage, so you can stamp six large images, twelve smaller images, and so on. It was fun, and I like what I got. Now, about this card, I trimmed the white to fit the sketch and water colored the image. That's the only thing that took any time at all. I sponged with Chocolate Chip and layered the main image on Chocolate Chip for a mat. I added the checkered ribbon and then adhered to Summer Sun and then to the Pumpkin Pie base card. I added the bow, and that's it! Thanks for stopping by today!
