For my nephew, who's turning 12 next week I made this card.
I'm entering into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: start afresh.
I got the Uniko (explosion) stamp in earlier this week and the My Favorite Things stamp (superhero boy) today!
I was quite anxious about it getting in in time, so I started the cardbase yesterday, I stamped all the words and graphics from the stampset with Memento dewdrops in fun and bright colors, I hope boy colors, but I'm not an expert on 11 year old boys, lol.
Anyway for the superhero I stamped him with My Favorite Things hybrid black ink onto Schut watercolor paper and used Talens Ecoline to color him, then cut him out and then I went around the edges with Memento black marker and mounted him with foam tape to the cardbase.
I didn't include a sentiment on the front as it's quite busy as is ;-)
Though about a black strip, but decided against it.
I've used fixative off camera to set the image.
