Awesome Superhero

You know what?  I love superhero movies.  So of course I had to get Calling All Heroes when it was released, even though I haven't used it much.  Had to dust it off for today's card.

I have some trouble with photopolymer stamps and the new firm foam ink pads sometimes; my pads are still relatively new and really, really extra juicy which sometimes makes for uneven edges on the solid stamps like this.  I wish I'd used the retired Starburst Framelits for behind my superhero instead of a plain circle, but I didn't think of it until I already had the Dimensionals on the regular circle so it is what it is.

I used the current sketch from Freshly Made:

And this superfantastic color combo from the Color Throwdown:

Love those colors!  That's it for me today, peeps.  I've got several things I want to do today so I'd better get a move on.  Cheers, y'all!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Calling All Heroes, Flower Patch
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Blushing Bride, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
Paper:  Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
Accessories:  Banners & Circles Framelits, 1 3/4" circle punch, Dimensionals

when my pads are really "juicy" i take a plastic spoon and rub and push the ink in a little more. it seems to help.

A great use of the sketch. The superhero is the star of the show - with the stars on the pennant being a great backdrop. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
