welcome back to day two of the papertrey ink countdown to the may release, and another look at my new stamp set, superhero. today it's all about super girl! sticking with the same yellow of the traditional color scheme, i swapped out pink for the red and aqua for the darker blue. immediately more girly! first up, i created a collage of layered die cuts. the yellow base layer is from the cover plate: comic strip, the burst bubble from zappy birthday, the rest from the new superhero die collection. i always have fun playing with pieces to come up with a look like this one - it's a little like putting a puzzle together. the end result is fresh and fun - looks like a job for super girl!!
next, how about a little ink smooshing? the blast of pink with a few dots splattered around the edges, is the perfect backdrop for another little grouping of die cuts and images, without adding an extra layer. kapow! i also pulled in the star doodle from pencil me in (which is still on my desk from last month, ha!) and stamped it three times around the circle. stars and superheroes are always a good match!
and finally, a card showcasing one of the full sized masks as an oversized focal image. i used the pixel dot stamp along a length of pink cardstock from which to cut the mask and added an embellishment with one of the superhero icons. the mask was then layered over a yellow sunburst panel centered on a white base card - the edges of the mask were trimmed to the card edge. a sentiment in the lower right corner and jewel in the middle of the star are the perfect finishing touches.
and because they're all about super girl, each card needed to sparkle! a little wink of stella on select areas did the trick: on super girl and the mini mask, on the superhero star icon on the large mask, and on kapow in the thought bubble. gotta have sparkle and shine! who should i create for tomorrow? c'mon back to see! but first, check out nichole's post for scoop and links!
