As soon as I saw this week's sketch challenge over on the MFT blog I knew that I wanted to make a superhero card. I think it was the speech bubble in the corner that really got the comic book idea stuck in my brain. So all I had to decide was do I use the Super Boy or Super Girl stamp? In the end I went with the boy simply because I do so many girlie cards that this would be a fun change up. I kept the classic Superman color scheme for his costume and even gave this little guy some super hero blue/black hair too. I also ended up altering his face a little by drawing in eyebrows and a smirk to make him look a bit more confident than the original image. The die cut cityscape in the background and the sentiment are all part of the Zappy Birthday set from Papertrey Ink. I really liked that the font had that classic comic book look.
Ok then, time for me to fly off, LOL!
