Tardy Space Shot v2.0 -- Animals challenge

I honestly don't know what's been going on with my brain lately. I'll actually complete a project on time, then either forget to take a photo of it or forget to post it. Or both. This was a case of both.

Jackie Payne was the hostess for the Animals challenge at Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog.
We all love our animals, incorporate an animal into your project.

Foxy, Henny Penny, and Rootie Toot were stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts), colored with Copic markers, fussy-cut, then edged with a Black Pitt Artist Brush pen (Faber Castell). They were set aside while I worked on their background.

Brown cardstock was die-cut twice with dies from the A2 Card Creator Nestabilities die set (Spellbinders). One of the rectangles was die-cut again to create a frame. This frame was detailed with Polychromos pencils (Faber Castell) to make the brown cardstock look woodier. 

Silver metallic cardstock (Recollections) was die-cut with the Chicken Wire die (Die-Namics), then adhered to the back of the frame. Dimensional adhesive was attached to the back of the combination of the frame and chicken wire. 

Some raffia was adhered to the bottom of the solid brown rectangle, then Foxy was adhered. A VersaMarker was used to outline Foxy to create a shadow behind him. The chicken wire frame was adhered over Foxy, trapping him in a chicken coop!

Red cardstock was cut to a bit wider than the rectangle, detailed with colored pencils, and smudgily edged with Black Soot Distress ink (Ranger). The top of the rectangle was was scored, then adhered flush at the top of the rectangle. Several layers of dimensional foam adhesive was added to create depth on the lower part of the rectangle to make it look more like a roof.

"Grounded" was stamped onto white cardstock, die-cut with one of the thought bubble dies from the Talk Bubbles die set (Simon Says Stamp),  and sponged with Black Soot Distress ink (Ranger). The stamped talk bubble was adhered to the roof over Foxy's head.

"Incident Report" and "Approach with Caution were stamped onto one of the sheets from the White Basics (Basic Grey) 6x6 pad, die-cut with two different rectangle dies from the A2 Card Creator Nestabilities set, sponged with Black Soot Distress ink, and adhered to the top of the card. Staples from my Tiny Attacher (Idea-ology) were add a further detail.

A strip of brown cardstock was cut, sponged with Black Soot Distress ink, popped up on dimensional adhesive, and added to the base of the newly constructed chicken coop. Henny Penny, and Rootie Toot were adhered chicken coop, and the chicken coop was adhered to a scrap of patterned blue cardstock (Club Scrap). The card front was adhered to a card and I called it done!

Thanks for visiting today!
