I live in a small town just outside Spokane. When we go to Spokane, we almost always see a flock of turkeys. I tried to recreate such a scene using Susan's CountryScape Critters 6, CountryScape Critters 2, CountryScape Kentucky 3-Rail Horse Fence, CountryScape Cloud/Grass, and CountryScapes Woods 1 die sets. Also used was Karen Burniston's Outdoor Edges die set.
This is a 6x6 inch card. A slightly smaller piece of white card stock was used for the background. The top portion of it was sponged with Stormy Sky Distress Ink.
Using the CountryScapes Cloud die, four cloud edges were die cut so they could be layered at different angles to form a cloudy sky. Using Outdoor Edges, two landscapes were die cut using tan card stock. They were layered below the clouds.
Using the Woods 1 die set, 4 trees were die cut and colored. Three of the trees were attached over the tan landscape. One of the trees was cut apart to become a bush in front of one of the fence posts. Using the leaf die in the Woods 1 die set, a lot of little leaves were die cut.
The Kentucky 3-Rail Horse Fence was die cut twice to fit across the card. The fence had Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back so it could be attached over the trees. One side of the fence had to be trimmed off to fit the card front.
Using the CountryScapes Critters 6 die set, three turkeys were die cut and colored with markers. Using the CountryScapes Critters 2 die set, two of each of the birds were die cut and color sponged on.
Using the CountryScapes Cloud/Grass die set, a trip of grass was die cut, using tan card stock.
The tree top, that was cut down, was attached next to the center fence post. A few of the tiny leaves were attached to the branches. All the other little leaves were attached across the bottom of the card, to resemble fallen leaves on the ground.
The tree turkeys were attached at the bottom of the card. The six little birds were attached in the trees and on the fence rail.
It is so fun to use your imagination to create a country scene using Susan's CountryScapes dies.
