Today is my dad’s birthday (in case you couldn’t tell). It’s very difficult to make cards for men, but this is what I came up with.
He is a kid at heart, so I guess it fits. Anyway, Dad, I hope you’re having a great day, I hope you get lots of gifts that aren’t combined with Christmas, and I’ll hand-deliver this card to you in 3 days!
The Superhero is Star Boy Luka from Lala Land Crafts. He’s colored with Copics on Beckett paper, which, if you’ve been reading my Copic tutorials over at The Crop Spot blog, you’ll know has usurped Neenah as my favorite Copic paper. All that red and dark blue, and no bleeding into the yellow!
I cut the words out with my Pazzles and added shading with chalk. The chalk set is one of those tools that’s been hanging out in my stash so long I forgot I had it. I really like the results, though. I’ll be breaking them out more often. Incidentally, “you’re” and “super” are two words that definitely start to look like they’re spelled wrong when you’ve been staring at them too long.
