Holy Batman!

 My son loves Batman. He was batman two years ago and he wants to be Batman again this year. This time he wants to be all black. But, making another Batman costume is not exactly getting me excited, but I'll probably give in and make one anyways. So, when I saw that the challenge for Simon Says Stamp and Show was Heroes, I immediately thought of my boys and superheroes.

I got the Batman image from an online coloring page (I didn't write it down, need to remember to do that) and printed it out. Well, since changing my printer ink, I have noticed that my printer ink and my copics don't get along. So, I had to wait for my husband to go to work and use his laser printer to print it out again. So, that is why I got on and did a card for my hubby first and now am posting my finally finished superhero card!

So, here is my card. (Have I annoyed you with all the "so's"?)

The black square isn't centered because I originally wanted the tips of the cape to be on the cobweb paper as much as possible, but after I stuck it down permanently, I changed my mind. Ugh!

I seem to be on a black and white kick, and with this weeks challenge over at Kenny K being black and white + one, I will be making another soon! I'm lovin' it, I just hope you all don't get bored!
I printed out some Batman comic strips from the internet as my background paper, stamped some cobwebs and distressed with Wild Honey Distress Ink for my next layer. I used some chevron scraps for my banner to work with the Trendy challenge for Simon Says Stamps!

I popped the black square up on double stacked foam dimensionals as well as the image, except for the tips of the cape and the bottom of the image. I was trying to go for a curved dimensional look.  I did the same to the birthday banner, except opposite so it is concave as opposed to convex like the image.

This card will be a hit with my six year old! As always, thanks for looking and for all the wonderful comments!
