Super Birthday Wishes

Today, I have card to share that I made using some Reverse Confetti products

Since I don't have any superhero stamps in my stash,
I was inspired by Nina Marie to make my own superhero
by drawing on a mask and a cape.
And my superhero's alter ego?
The adorable monkey from Monkey Business, of course!


I stamped the monkey in Versafine and heat embossed it in clear.
Then, I drew my mask and cape with a fine Sharpie.
I wet ink that I had pressed onto my acrylic block with water and applied
the ink to my card using a paint brush.


I stamped my sentiment (from Circle Sentiments) and
 added the "super" using some alphabet stickers from my stash.



 

Thanks for looking!
