good morning & welome back to day three of the papertrey ink may countdown. today i decided to focus on the boys. and while i'm using a lot of the traditional superhero colors again, i also decided to add in a little aqua mist. i saw it on a superhero fabric with the red, blue, yellow, and black. it was used as a background color and seemed to lighten things up a little. first up, a clean and simple birthday card. another mini die cut collage, grounded with the pixel dot pattern stamped in aqua mist, and then again in harvest gold, slightly offset. zappy birthday, boy wonder!
next, a card for dad. a skyline die cut over the pixel dot pattern, stamped the same way as on the first card in aqua mist and harvest gold. the superhero icon, stamped in red and colored over with a slightly different shade of red copic, is the perfect base for the dad die cut stamped in blue and colored over in aqua. together, they create a recognizable superdad symbol that fits right over the low building with the spotlights. the sentiment continues below the focal grouping. dad, you're my hero!
and last, but never least, a sound effects hero card that would be good for a birthday or even a fun hello. the tower has been zapped! i had not thought of using the soundburst in this way before, but it landed under the tower on my desk and i thought i'd give it a try. i think it turned out really fun! wham! zap! hope your day is action packed! again, i've incorporated aqua mist, but this time in card stock form. i really like the light touch it adds. what do you think? i'd love to hear! i'll be back tomorrow with more super fun - meanwhile don't forget to head over to nichole to see what's in the spotlight today, including links to lots of amazing projects!
