I love this superhero image from A Day for Daisies and I wanted to do something different from the classic Superman red and blue.
It’s my brother’s birthday early next month and he’s a real action man. I decided to make a birthday card for him and give it a bit of a ‘steampunk’ look.
The die cut tandem and all the card / papers are from Hunkydory. I paper-pieced the cape and leggings and coloured him with Promarkers. The cogs are Tim Holtz.
To personalise the card, I added a G to the badge on his chest (my brother’s name initial), coloured the hair ginger (like my brother), and added the sentiment ‘To a Super Brother’, using Safmat.
I’ve been using a lot of neutrals lately...think I’d better do something bright and colourful next!
