Hey there, it's time for this week's CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  We're supposed to use acetate on our Thanksgiving or Christmas projects.  Perfect time for a shaker card, huh?  I colored this adorable turkey from Whipper Snapper Designs a couple weeks ago and was pretty happy to finally be able to use him on a project!  I have lots and lots of pictures of how I got the dimension on Terrance, so put your feet up and enjoy!  *grin*

Terrance Turkey was stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White four times.

In step can see that everything was given a quick coat.  I like to do a little color in case someone is looking in between the layers, but I don't spend a lot of time on the parts that won't show.  Since the feathers are the only part that will show at this stage, I took my time and shaded them then fussy cut the whole thing.
Step two...the body has shading and will show once the pieces are stacked while everything else has a quick coat of color.  It was fussy cut omitting the feathers.
Step three...the face and wings are shaded while everything else has a quick coat.  You can see how the different sections were fussy cut.
Step four...last but not least.  The hat, beak and feet were all colored, shaded then fussy cut.
Here are all the pieces so you can see the different stages at a glance.  Thin foam squares were used to layer the pieces.  Creating dimension is always fun...a lot of work, but definitely worth it when it's done!
