Here we are at the first of November and soon it will be
turkey time!
Which brings us to our fun challenge this week at
Classy Cards 'n Such with a theme of Gobble Gobble, add a turkey!

I first started by using the Ken Oliver Color Bursts
puffed on a wet piece of water color paper (the smoother side).
Colors used were Yellow Ochre, Pthalo Green, Sepia, and Burnt Orange,
in that order.

I used my heat tool to dry the paper,
then cut out 3 turkey feather sections using
PoppyStamps Festive Turkey.

Joy! Foam Pads Small were used to pop up each of the 3 layers.
Here is a side view of the layers.

Once the turkey was finished (time to eat...lol),
I decided to make a shaker card.
I used a Spellbinders Basic Circle die and used the negative cut from that.

I cut a clear piece of plastic I recycled from packaging and using Scor Tape 1/4",
I adhered it to the card stock negative.

I stamped a row of trees, added foam tape then sequins for the shaker.
However, I didn't have any sequins in all the colors I wanted for fall,
so I quickly grabbed My Favorite Things Sequins die, and die cut my own
from Yellow Iris Shimmer Sheetz and Orange Iris Shimmer Sheetz.

Entering the following challenges:
Challenge Up Your Life .... Shaker
Hiding In My Craft Room .... Chocolate Pie Garden

Thank you for visiting with me today!!
