Seize the Sketch 19-You're Super

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my TCP Tuesday post. ***

It’s time for a new sketch at Seize the Sketch! This week’s sketch was designed by Jessi and it’s a fun one with lots of possibilities.

You're Super card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from My Favorite ThingsI used the new You’re Super stamp set and matching dies from My Favorite Things for my card. I stamped the super hero image on a matching cardstock die cut, then colored her with Copic markers using a bold red and yellow color scheme. She’s adhered to a background panel made from a piece of sunburst patterned paper.

For the cardfront, I die cut a strip of pennant flags from red cardstock, then layered it across a gray dotted panel. I topped the pennant strip with a strip of wide red stitched grosgrain ribbon, then added the image panel on top. The “you’re super” sentiment was stamped in gray ink on a piece of a red fishtail flag strip and adhered to the top of the panel, extending just beyond the panel’s edge. It hides where I originally stamped the sentiment directly on the yellow panel—it was crooked, so I needed to come up with a way to hide it and the red fishtail flag strip seemed like a good option! I finished the card with a trio of sparkly silver sequin around the image.
