Blessed Scraps Challenges

These are two of the monthly challenges I completed for Blessed Scraps over on yahoo groups. The first is a make your own background challenge. I used a Hampton Arts Twas the Night Before Christmas stamp to make the background. The Santa stamp is from Hampton Arts and the sentiment is also from Hampton Arts. These stamps make great impressions no matter what color ink you use. I used Distressed Ink in Vintage Photo to stamp. Both images are matted on evergreen cardstock from DCWV.

This is our turkey paper piecing challenge. I decided to make him very colorful. Each of his feathers were cut from scraps of paper I had so I am not sure what company produced them. The turkey pattern is actually a digistamp from Digi Kitty that I won. I outlined each feather in dark brown to add some definition.
