The Great Escape

I have had so much fun using this adorable DRS stamp: High Tailin' Turkey! It reminds me of a small class of special education students I taught a few years ago. We were writing a story together. They came up with the ideas and I modeled the writing. It was called, The Great Escape. I wish I had been more careful with saving it. It was such an adorable story. This turkey image is like a walk down memory lane. :)

This first card was made for the SCS Clean & Simple challenge to use dimensionals / pop-up dots. On this card, the hats are popped up. The designer paper was cut free-hand to make the hill. I also used a Scor-Pal, SU punches, and Copic markers. The sentiment is the first two lines of the sentiment seen in the third card of this post.

This second card was designed using the Mojo Monday sketch challenge this week. I used Copic markers for the turkey and SU creamy caramel ink for the ground. First I sponged the ink, starting from the edge and sponging towards the center. Then I used my markers to add some "pebbles". Cardstock: white, sahara sand, sage shadow, and To the Nines dsp. Accessories: brads, scalloped Nestie, Martha Stewart zig-zag edge punch.

On this last card, I wanted to emphasize the full greeting. So I used the turkey to make a unique background by repeatedly stamping him in mulitiple directions.
