STAMPlorations Release - Super Hero

Hello, it's Day 1 of the STAMPlorations release, and we're starting with my set, Super Hero.  

The sharp-eyed among you will have noticed on the sneak peeks that there are no sleeves/cuffs on the Super Hero - this was (ahem) a design feature ;)  But what it does mean is that you can draw the cuffs wherever you want them.  

Today's hero is wearing gloves; check out the sleeveless tunic and wristbands on this guy, and no gloves on this girl.  I made a pop-up box, stamped and fussy cut my images, and stencilled Dots All Over on the side panels.  The flash, number and star are adhered to strips of acetate.

Next is another one for the girls.  I added a few extra sweeps of hair colour, then drew in couple of lines with black pen.  I also added some detail on the tunic and boots.

With all of the super heroes, I've only used double sided tape down the torso so that the head, arms, cape and legs are free, which adds movement.  You could bend them outwards like I did on this card:

My final card uses the buildings and star stamp, along with a sentiment from Baa Baa.  Once I'd stamped and stencilled the scene I cut it out using a circle die and mounted it onto my card along with the star and sentiment strip.
