Hero Man

Today's challenge at Stamps R Us is to create a shaped card, anything but a square or rectangle & is sponsored by Gingerloft

I decided to go with a circle because it was a good chance for me to try out the Martha Stewart Circle Cutter I received for Christmas.  My Nesties just aren't big enough to do the card &  although I'm wanting some of the Grand Circle Nesties, the MS cutter worked ok.  It's difficult to get nice smooth edges but I was going to distress this anyway so it's all good.  The digi image is Gingerloft's Hero Man & as soon as I saw him, I wanted him.... hmmmm... now I wonder what my next two wishes should be?

I used the cardstock with the core colour which is how I was able to get that white, ragged edge & coloured the image with Copics. The sentiment & all caption clouds are computer generated (those four little pieces of paper took me about 4 hours to get finished!).  For the inside, I did a computer sentiment on Stampin Up's Confetti paper which says 'Happy Birthday to a Super Guy!', cut it with a circle Nestie & plopped it in crooked!  As usual, I've left everything until the last minute & don't have time to take another picture for the inside.
