I made a couple of these for my club hostesses this month, and now that all my clubs are done, I can share it! (I like to keep things a secret!) This little favor is made with a mint patty and the Days of Gratitude stamp set. I did share it on SCS, so you might have already seen it:
The body is two 1 3/4” circles punched from Cajun Craze; I cut a tiny slice off each bottom so that my favor would stand up. The head is a 1” circle of More Mustard. I wheeled them with the Cornelli Lace jumbo wheel in CC ink. The “wings” were stamped with More Mustard ink, then I colored over the lower feathers with a Cajun Craze marker and the middle feathers with a Pumpkin Pie marker. I find that stamping the whole image first with More Mustard, then coloring over it with the markers, gives it better coverage. The wattle is the Modern Label punch, trimmed, punched in Real Red; the eyes were 1/4” circles and the beak was cut freehand. Everything was daubered with Cajun Craze. Sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. The patty was sandwiched between the two large circles with the feathers inserted between:
This was a real hit with my girls and was fun to make!
Some of you wondered if I “lost” my little pumpkin; no, she just hasn’t been very photogenic the last few days, but my DD snagged a good one last night! She is just learning to hold her head up as she lays on her tummy---and she usually doesn’t like it! But you’d never know from this pic! Here you go!
Thanks for visiting today and have a blessed Friday!
