Today I have a fun Thanksgiving card and video to share with you. It is Thanksgiving this coming weekend here in Canada and I have used the Regal Peacock Layers dies to make a turkey. A wild turkey in fact!
The four layers of the Regal Peacock Layers die set can create the most beautiful tail feathers and when I created the tail using browns and blacks the result was definitely the colour of wild turkeys!
I used black for layer A which will sit as the bottom layer. Then Layer D was cut with a dark brown cardstock, Layer C a lighter brown cardstock the top layer A with gold sparkle cardstock. The combination is so rich and vibrant! The following is a video of my process turning the peacock into a turkey!
I created three tails to make one big turkey tail.
My turkey is bending down to much on the acorns and seeds on the grass, sorry that you only see the back of his head–lol! The grass was ink blended using two shades of Distress Oxide greens!
The results from these dies create so much gorgeous texture and with a bit of thought the colour combinations can be endless! One more look…
Thank you so much for stopping by today and wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving from Canada. Be sure to stop back in on Wednesday for more Birch Press Inspiration!
