There is so much craziness in the world right now, and I had taken quite a hiatus from crafting, but once I got started this week, I couldn’t stop making hero cards for our front line essential workers. This superheroes card is also made using the Inloveartshop.com Nesting Dies Set and the Caped Cuties from Clearly Besotted (retired, but a recent re-issue is available HERE).
For this card, I decided to try to make the explosive background created with the Nesting Dies Set more like those cartoon reverberations. I used a white card stock card base and then used linen-textured white card stock for all the layered bursting nesting dies. The pops of color came into play as I decided to Copic color the caped cutie bunny and teddy bear as female superheros in pinks and purples:
Bunny body: RV000, RV00, and RV02
Teddy body: RV00, RV02, and RV55
Bunny costume: V12, V15, and V17
Teddy costume: BV02, BV04, and BV08
Because I accidentally bled my colors when coloring up the Teddy’s costume outside the lines I doodled on black and white striped accent bands with a 0.05 Copic Multiliner Pen and a Uniball Signo White Gel Pen. I also used the white gel pen to highlight the critters’ eyes, the bunny tail and inside the teddy’s ear. I used Fiskars Spring Loaded Reverse Scissors to fussy cut them out and popped them up on foam dots for added dimension.
This card, and others I crafted with this InLoveArtShop design team package is shared in the following video:
