Homemade…. Eat Turkey!

HomeMade, Eat Turkey 2014
This is my card for Though the Craft Room Door challenge and I just want to REMIND EVERYONE THE CHALLENHE IS ANYTHING GOES ALL THE TIME! Just in case you forgot. If you do not know what ANYTHING GOES mean let me explain you can enter card/project/ornament/ as long as it is something you created you can enter it. Here is the link you need so you do not need to go looking for it. All you need to do is enter it in the “INLINKS”.  The sponsor for the time is Oak Pond Creations and this in one the Kim’s images and it is called ROOSTER (I think that is a good name for him) and if you like him you can fine him here. Personally I think he is adorable, I do have to tell you I had to look up Roosters on my computer so I could see what they look like. Hey I live in the city, what can I say….. If you have time stop by and check out the other designers creations everyone did an amazing job on their projects. Challenge ends on December 15, 2014.

I’m not good at doing CAS cards but I did want to see if I could do it and I think I pretty much did!

The paper is from Die Cuts with a View (DCWV) Nana’s Kitchen stack. The sentiment was part of the stack. The spellbinder used to cut out the Rooster is called curved rectangles. I do have to tell you I keep wanting to call the Rooster a Chicken, sorry!

Added several glitter dots. Now hope easy is that?

My poor inside, used brilliance ink color orange and several glitter dots but I had to write “EAT TURKEY”, you know how at Thanksgiving time they tell you to eat BEEF, I thought if it said EAT TURKEY that would be funny, well what you think?

These are the copic markers I used to color my Rooster. I wanted to share with you what I did to the ground. I asked my friend (he like to do woodworking to save me some saw dust) and what can I say, a little silly question but he did. So I took the saw dust and mixed with some other stuff I had to make it look like what Roosters would walk in (I think) so this is what I got. Used some diamond glaze to hold everything down and this it what it looks like. It you add just a touch of greens inks it kind of looks like grass.

This is so cute and you did an amazing job on the image and background. It looks like a painting.

Eat turkey, with a rooster..LOL. That's brilliant. I can't blame you for looking it up on the Internet. How often do you see poultry walking around in the city??? I absolutely LOVE that you used sawdust for the grass. Adding the green worked out perfectly!!! That's such a great idea. I think my husband would MUCH prefer I disperse sawdust around the house than glitter.... something about glitter on a military uniform...I don't know...seems pretty to me. LOL!
Hugs to you Pat and thanks for sharing your CAS, but detailed still, card.
