Banana Split Sunday!

Chicken Impossible!It's 2RedBananas' Banana Split Sunday, and today's challenge title is *You're an Animal!* I thought it would be really fun to dress up Chicken Impossible in an animal print trench coat!

I started off by scanning The Paper Studio's leopard print designer paper, re-scaling it to a size that would be appropriate for paper piecing the trench coat and printing it on regular printer paper. I stamped the image on it, shaded under the collar and colored the belt with prisma color pencils, then cut the pieces out and glued them to my prismas and gamsol colored bird. The piece of vanilla cardstock with the completed image was then passed through the Cuttlebug with a circle nestability to cut and again to emboss the edges. I used a scalloped edge circle to punch a black mat.

The rest of the card I kept uncomplicated and open, loosely based on a sketch by my friend Kendra. I cut a strip of the designer print, matted it with black, then topped it with a matted sentiment stamped in black on vanilla cardstock. I finished with a couple of primas with black button centers. Such a fun card to make! I think the recipient will get a big kick out of it!
