Superhero Day Off

This card is another one for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. The concept this week is 'Friends or Superhero' showcasing Mama Elephant products & I don't know why but I badly wanted to do a super hero card that wasn't anything you'd expect from a super hero card, I had images of superheroes with their feet up & a bowl of popcorn or picnicking in the park. None of those really worked out but I liked the idea of superheroes having a day off.

These superheroes are the same ones I had in my last superhero card (this time they're in their summer colours) & the concept is that they're having a day in the park...hopefully that comes across, at least a little bit.

The superheroes are from the Mama Elephant tiny heroes set & most of the other supplies are from the June Simon Says Stamp card kit :)

So first things first I stamped the super heroes in memento ink, coloured them in using copics & spectrum noir pens then cut them out using the matching dies. Then I used a copic multi liner to draw the ice-creams, colouring them in using the alcohol markers & cut them out.
I used one of the lawn fawn stitched hillside dies on a cut down piece of card from the card kit & used the Mama Elephant grass dies on a piece of cut down card from the 6x6 pad that came in the card kit. The blue background is also from that 6x6 pad of paper.
Then came the 'putting it all together' stage. So I used my tape runner to stick on the hill, foam tape to stick on the back grass layer & more tape runner to stick on the front grass layer. Both of the ice creams were stick on with foam tape & slipper into the hands which I had cut a little the hand could wrap around the cone. Both of those superheroes were also taped on with foam tape. The pink & blue superhero & the dog are stuck on with tape runner & the blond superhero was stuck on with a mix.
The sun is from the enamel shapes that came with the card kit.
The cloud shape is drawn on vellum using the hero arts cloud stencil, stamped with Versamark & embossed with Ranger White Super Fine & WOW Gold Rich Pale Super Fine.
The whole thing is stuck on an A6 sized Neenah Desert Storm top folding card.
