snood: noun

The flap of skin that hangs over the turkey's beak is called a snood. It turns red when the turkey is upset or during courtship

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Since I am entering this card into the PanPastel challenge, I try to do a little more artistic measures, like hand drawing the turkey and sign, painting, and using my old chalk set. ( As close as I can get to PanPastels, lol ) I have to say that their sponges and applicators are the best and I love the ones I purchased. ( even for the old fashion chalks ) I used my Sakura Glaze pens for the tail and snood, and my Pitt Pens to outline everything with.
I wanted the sign he is holding to stand out a little bit so I wiped some white acrylic paint on with my finger, and I have a dry Copic ( just haven't taken the time to refill it ) and swiped it over the edges. Again, ( like yesterday's card ) I printed my text out on regular paper and then laid my "sign" over it using an uplight box to trace over the words with my Pitt Pen. ( have I mentioned lately how much I love these pens?? )

Love the word snood! Isn't there a ladies head wrap thing also called a snood? Like the lady in Grey Gardens wore... Jackie O's nutty relatives. Although she wrapped anything over her head but the idea was there. Anyway... TURKEYS! At least you have turkeys in your family. I have turds. They stink. Love that you hand drew that card! Um... why do you stamp if you can draw?!?!?!?!!! I like how you made the sign really pop.

I had trouble understanding why you needed a light box until I reread the post a couple of times. I don't own one of those gizmos, but I bet they are handy.

I can see you are just about ready for Thanksgiving with all these cards you have made this week.
