Everyone has every day hero's in their lives-I've blogged about some earlier this year, people who have been their for you when you needed their support. I Love to give those people the recognition they deserve-its always very much appreciated to have people like that in our lives isn't it?
Todays Global design project challenge is a sketch-I'm a huge lover of sketch challenges as you know, and todays is no different.

amazing designers samples of this sketch
Here is my version based on the sketch-I was inspired by that faint heart background in the sketch to use Stampin' Ups "Hearts and stars" decorative masks-How cute and easy is it to create a fun back ground with them?

Tips and tricks:
All highlighted products can be purchased at my store (just click!)
- For this card you will need-Whisper white card stock, Daffodil delight card stock, black card stock, Vellum, Hearts and stars decorative masks, everyday hero stamp set, Layering ovals framelits, gold embossing powder, heat tool, metallic thread (I used a retired cord at the top of the vellum, but you could wind a few layers of the fine thread to create a similar effect) Inks-Daffodil delight, Delightful dijon, Crushed curry, brights markers (to colour in the super hero!), stays on black, and Versamark inks. Adhesives- Tombo liquid adhesive, and Dimensionals.
- To achieve that burst off stars to the side, layer the mask with the majority of the "burst" of stars to the one side, and layer the successive colours over the top, moving the mask each time. you don't have to be too fussy about where the last layer had gone, it adds to the movement/texture when they aren't aligned at all.
- Tape down your whisper white piece with Washi tape before sponging the ink on. That way there will be no smudging.
- Use a slightly larger piece of whisper white than you need initially and cut it down to the size you want. That way if the washi grabs and tears away, after inking, it wont matter, because you will cut it down to fit on your card base anyway.
Create with Carl-
Carl had had an idea to create this slider card as soon as he saw the every day hero stamp set-all super heros fly don't they? When he came to make the card, he went to Pinterest for inspiration, and saw Kylie's card, using the everyday hero set- and he loved it-so he decided to CASE (copy and selectively edit) it, adjusting the design so that he could make a slider card. He had never made a slider card before, (he had seen mine from a few months ago-HERE) and, as I was working on my blog post for yesterday, it caused a bit of frustration on my part, as to the help required-LOL-but we got their in the end. It made for a funny LIVE Facebook broadcast to the crazy crafters, anyway. lol.
I LOVE what he ended up creating, and his vision of a flying hero is just amazing.
