Sweet Stampin' - Unusual Hair Colour

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Well it's Saturday and Sweet Stampintime - so I'm here to share my Design Team card with you. Our theme this week is 'Unusual Hair Colour'.  So come on and grab your stamp, and go wild and create some fun hair colours and make a card or project and join in with us.

Well I won't lie, I had to think hard about this one and I decided not to go all glam, instead I went for Bam! and Zaap! Lol. I've had this little cutie for absolutely ages and just never got around to using her, she's call Super Girl, isn't she fab! There's also a boy version as well (which I've also never used).

So for my card I made her into a 'The Purple Crusader' and colour her hair to match her cape; she's coloured with Copic pens. Isn't she just fab! The circles on the card were die cut to create apertures and brightly coloured papers printed with super hero sound effects and used to fill them. Well she is a super hero after all :)

Here's What I Did
First I cut a piece of lilac card to size to mat a A5 white card base, then cut a piece of white card to fit on top. I die cut 3 circles and a few star shapes into the white card and glued it directly on top of the lilac card. Using CraftArtist I printed super hero sound effects on to 3 different patterned papers and die cut them using the same size circles, these were then glued into the apertures. Everything was them attached to the card base using foam pads to give it a lift.

Next I printed the image directly onto colouring cardstock and coloured her in with Copic pens, then fussy cut her out. She was attached to the card base using foam pads.

To finish off I added a little glitter to her mask, and die cut a few more stars and attached them using foam pads.
