Now, admit it ... this is not an award winning color job! Honestly, coloring is not only something I do not do well, but frankly, dislike altogether. I never got over the trauma of being the last kid in my kindergarten class - no exaggeration - to learn how to color inside the lines! Perhaps therapy would help? ;-) Actually, this was also my first experience with digital stamps! I have never been interested in them, mostly because since coloring is a weak point, I enjoy create techniques like embossing, alcohol inks, etc, both of which don't work when using digitals. Frankly, had I paid attention when the call went out for this hop, and noticed it was a specific and digital image, I would not have agreed to do it! So, I am very glad I was in ignorance: digitals are fun! As I said, coloring is a weak point, so I knew that my efforts would not focus in that direction (though I admit, I did not mean for my focus to wander quite so far, lol!) Actually, I did take the time to google turkeys for realistic colors! Anyway, I literally prayed for inspiration, and immediately the idea of a place holder came to mind. I do not have a photo editor that allows me to custom size an image, but I can pick from standard picture sizes. Wallet size was the closest I could get, a little on the big side: the length of the green place holder is 6 inches, so a little large, but not badly so. If I were making a set of these to use, I would attach the name and its background with temporary bond glue, so that I could "recycle" them another year.
Thank you for stopping by! And don't forget to leave a comment at each stop for a chance to win!!
