Turkey Lurkey - Frosted Designs Challenge and Just Buggin'


The challenge at the Frosted Designs blog was to use brown, teal, and orange and Just Buggin' wanted you to use some sort of cricut animal....even a created one. I combined these with a sketch from RAQ's challenge at the Cricut messageboard. Paper is DCWV Indian Summer and Imaginesce. Used the MS leaf edging punch (boy, am I going to have practice with those things.) Recollections rub-on for the sentiment and side leaves.



Now for the turkey.....well, I never cared for any of the Cricut turkeys, although I have 4 of them. This one is constructed from George Circles (head and body), George hearts (feathers), and George triangles (nose and feet - hand trimmed) The top of his head is from the rooster on Animal Kingdom - trimmed - and the waddle is from Animal Kingdom's turkey. I inked it all.....used a colored pencil to add cheeks and accentuate around the edges.........doodled...and sharpied the eyes.
