I Brake For Traditional Thanksgiving Cards

Hi everybody, Regina here with a traditional Thanksgiving card.  

Thanksgiving will be here in the blink of an eye.  I wanted to make a traditional card for someone for Thanksgiving.  I was going to color the feathers different colors and make it look really fun and colorful.  I decided to look up pictures of what a real turkey looks like because I really didn't know.  I was very surprised by what I saw.  I even sent a picture of my card to someone that used to raise turkeys and she said this was spot on.  I didn't know they have a bluish face/head and iridescent feathers.  

This stamp comes from I Brake For Stamps.  It's called Thanksgiving Greetings.  

I used several layers to make it look like a picture, colored with Copics, sponged at the top, added some Perfect Pearls on the feather to give it an iredescent look, and finished it off with some hemp cord and a button.  Easy peasy except wow, did I use a lot of Copics!!!

If you are thankful and feel blessed, why not make a card during this holiday season time and tell someone what they mean to you and your life.  

I hope I inspired you to make some Thanksgiving cards.  It's really relaxing to color this stamp.
