Creative With Stamps #44; Turkey

November's challenge at Creative With Stamps is...

I didn't realize that I had a turkey stamp until I went through my "Other Holidays" stamp drawer and found this:
I received this stamp (along with many others) from Rubber Paws. I don't know why the middle is blank so if anyone knows, let me know in the comments. You'll see in the final card, I used a punched heart to place there.

Here are some of the products I used for the card:
I stamped the turkey three times with the Dark Roast ink. One turkey I used watercolor pencils and a water brush and the other two I used an assortment of Tombow markers to color in the image.

I thought I was done...but no...
After coloring the turkeys, there seemed to be something missing with the plain white background. I didn't want to fussy cut so I decided to make a mask and stamp over the turkeys with two different background stamps and two different ink colors. The red hearts have a little bit of gold glitter paper underneath the small hearts and are popped up with 3D foam squares.

I matted these panels to colored cardstock but still didn't really like them - they were missing something, so I pulled out a fine tip black marker and doodled around the diamonds in the background and around the turkey images. The messier the better. Then I added some Black Licorice Color Silk (FSJ) and a gold pen on one and white on two others.

And here they are:
