Retro Superman

Retro Superman - Today is a new sketch challenge at Seems a Little Sketchy. Just take a look at the lovely sketch that Tess made for us this time around.

This fortnight, we have something extra going on. I uncovered some fun Superman tibits and shared them on the Seems a Little Sketchy challenge blog. If you can add an interesting tibit on your blog post, then you can enter your card a second time. Just add a * behind your name for the second entry and we will know to look for your tidbit.

We are sponsored by Kenny K Downloads and this is the image that sparked our Superhero interest.

I colored Superhero with Copics and then added some gears using a stamp from Hot Off the Press and some dark brown ink.

Copics used - R 37, 35, 32, 30 E 000, 00, 02, 89, 87, 84, 81 YR 24, Y21
My DP is Tim Holtz Retro paper pad. 

I used another Hot off the Press stamp and embossed it. I added a little bit of Tea Dye distress ink on my papers and sentiment. My sentiment was punched with a SU punch and then used a matching metal plate with a couple of small brads. After all, Superman is the man of steel.

My star punch is MS.
