For The Birds!


My youngest son, Jeff carved this pumpkin. Didn't he do a GREAT job?

Here is the challenge...
At Fantabulous Cricut this week, the challenge is "For the Birds". (Make a project with a bird (or turkey) or something that has to do with a bird).

This will be my last project for Fantabulous Cricut as a Design Team my term is up. I am sad to see it end. I have enjoyed working with all of these talented women. I wish the next design team much success.  I hope you all still come to visit me here.

On to the card:

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5  1/2"

Cardstock: White, Yellow Gold, Yellow, Gold, Black, Rust/Brown, Speckled Ivory and Three Different  Patterned Papers
Cricut Cartridge 3Birds on Parade Pilgrim, page 41 (Base, Shift, Layer 1 Base, Layer 1 Shift, Layer 2 Base  and Phrase Shift)
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Herringbone
Gold Ribbon
Queen and Co Pearls Sunflower Yellow 2 Large and 2 Medium
Studio G Clear Stamps "Happy Turkey Day"
Brown Pigment Ink
Brown LaPlume II Marker
Mounting Tape

I know it is Halloween today, however, Thanksgiving is about 3 weeks away. (I would love to know where this year has gone!) So, I thought my pilgrim/turkey would be appropriate. The black card stock is just a scrap that is taped behind the eyes. I mounted the body of the bird over the feathers and then mounted the entire bird on the card. It may be hard to see, but I scored a line down the center of each of the feathers. I tried to use the marker to make shadows and give more dimension.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you continue to do so. Leave a comment (I always love reading your comments).

Thank you ladies at Fantabulous Cricut...I have enjoyed working with you. Good luck in the future and I'll be seeing you at the challenges!

Take care...
imagine what you could do
