I needed a card for a boy, and chose to use this Bugaboo Super Hero image
Before I printed him out, I added an age circle, a freebie from Cindy Close in 2011. I have tried to 'find' her since to insert a link, to no avail.
I masked the images and sprayed the background with a colour wash and a wee bit of Lemon Shimmer Spray before painting the super hero with acrylic paint, and colouring his face with chalks.
I coloured the outside edge of the circle with red pen, before adding clear stickles. The number was covered with gold stickles, which blobbed in the process, so after a quick scrape and dab, I was left with a smeared background, much to my frustration. I touched up the digit with a gold pen (which does not show as much IRL, as this image is approx 2x the size).
I layered the mounting of the image, sponging the edges of each layer as I went, and stamped and embossed the sentiment in gold on the top of the middle layer.
The fix for the smear - yes, the stars!! As a friend of mine says, "there are no mistakes, just opportunities for creativity".
I am linking this to:
