Turkey Bowl

Turkey Bowl - This fortnight's challenge at Craft Your Days Away is to make a tag. We are sponsored by Meljen's.
Meljen makes some really delightful images. They are real fun and so easy to use.


For my tag, I used Meljen's Turkey Bowl image. For my friends from abroad the turkey bowl is an American tradition. Many of you know that we traditionally serve turkey on Thanksgiving, but we have another tradition which is that we always have a major football game also on that day. That game is referred to as the turkey bowl. I love that Meljen used the play on words by putting a turkey in a bowl for this image. It made me chuckle the first time I heard it.

For my tag, I colored my image with Copic's and put some Stickles on the tail feathers. I used Rangers distress ink in several different colors to add color to the tag. I dangled some teardrop charms from the bottom.
