PGCB #86 - Super Heroes


I'm back playing along with the Paper Girls this week, and Erica has challenged us with a Super Heroes theme! I dug and dug through all my stamps, and low and behold, I had nothing Super Hero related. So...I found this ah-dorable image from Dr. Digi's...Blunder Woman! Her, and her famous partner, Captain Thunderpants, just won my heart over. So, I couldn't resist in making a swift purchase. Needless to say, I'll have a few more Super Hero cards coming around the corner with these two!

Here is the fun little card I made for this challenge:

I used my alcohol inks to color her and I paired her with some retired Close to My Heart paper that I've been hording in my stash for several years. The sentiment is from a Unity grab bag...and it just went with this image perfectly.

Thanks for stopping by to visit. Hope you get a few minutes to play along too and link your Super Hero project to the Paper Girls Challenge blog before 11:55pm on 8/29.

See you soon!

I was super excited when I found out we were going to be showcasing Angie Girl stamps by Angie Bloom. I got to use Lilli Girl - and she is ADORABLE! The little bird on her shoulder and her coveralls just make me happy! So, this is what I created: 

I'm really in love with smooshing watercolor paper in watered down dye inks to make pretty colorful backgrounds. I then used watercolor pencils to color Lilli Girl, cut her out and paper pieced her onto the watercolor paper. She really stands out this way. 

Thanks for hopping sure to visit Renee next!

Happy hopping!
