Challenge # 2 is up at A Blog Named Hero. This challenge is to use a window on your card. I would of LOVED to use Hero Arts stamps for this challenge........but my Inky Antics stamps won out in the end!
I got a new Impression Obsession background stamp that reminded me of chicken wire...so I wanted to use my chicken stamp!
I created my window from a Nestability die. Then I adhered my 'chicken wire' layer behind it popping it up. I stamped the hay directly on the card front and cut out my chicken and placed him on top of the hay, but also popped him up on the chicken wire layer.
He definitely needed a bit more, so I added a balloon covered with glossy accents and then used a tag for the sentiment. I added a birthday greeting inside.
I also used a woodgrain stamp on the front, but it would of been a whole lot easier if I stamped it BEFORE adding the chicken wire panel! So....stamping the wood after proved to be a challenge. (duh!)
Here's the challenge:
