Altered Dies #22

Hi Everyone! Are you ready for Thanksgiving? This card might put you in the spirit! Humor got the best of me with this quirky turkey! The saying is computer generated.

I don't really have any turkey stamps except for one small one. I really need to look at buying a few, so I made this fun turkey using a die and a chicken stamp by Sparkle N Sprinkle!

I started off  by cutting with the Cheery Lynn Mega Italian Flourish die. I cut from a background I had made a long time ago with alcohol inks.

The die was a little larger than the background, but I knew I would be cutting off some of the bottom anyway. I then cut between the scallops and this became the turkey's tail feathers!

The "turkey" is a chicken stamp courtesy of Sparkle N Sprinkle. I colored him with Spectrum Noir markers, fussy cut him and pop dotted him on top of  the "feathers."

I hope you enjoyed my altered die card today. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!

What a fun turkey! You did a great job transforming the chicken into one. I really like your AI background and it looks super as the turkey feathers.
