Turkey Jaundice?

Ok, so this turkey is not exactly the right colors. But, maybe since he has some sort of affliction, he'll be spared from the chopping block this year. Does he look like he has jaundice or something?? LOL

He is stamped onto SU! Whisper White with StazOn Timber Brown. I colored him in with Prismas, then blended with OMS and a stump. He is then cut out and embossed with the small square nesties and mounted on a scalloped square using the same small set.

The chocolate cardstock base is covered with PP trimmed 1/2 smaller on each side. Another strip of PP is mounted onto a mat. I used the CAD to make the holes for the brads.

Then each piece is adhered to the card front with pop dots. Smaller ones for the strip and larger ones for the image.

I will definitely be experimenting more with color for this image. Who knew a turkey would be so hard to color? And I should have used a darker color for the scalloped mat...ah, well, live and learn, right?

I actually think he looks really good. If I'm having trouble choosing colors for an image, sometimes I need to look up a real picture online to see what it should look like. Great papers too.
