My husband and boys are all huge comic book geeks. I'm surrounded by comic books and super hero stuff everywhere in my house. My husband is a fountain of useless information when it comes to all things superhero/comics so I knew if I had any problems with this challenge I had the perfect people to go too with questions.
The first thing I did was download Sandy Allnock's FREE comic book template. Some team members thought it was a bit too much to work with but I found the boxes the perfect guideline. After I printed the template out I actually cut out the boxes and then drew around them on another piece of paper so I could work outside the boxes. This allowed me to mask and erase pencil lines as I worked.
The set You're Super from MFT was perfect for this challenge. I grabbed the images, some post it notes and just started stamping and masking. After I got it all stamped I pulled out my copics and black pen and went to work adding details and coloring.
I love how this came out and when I put it to the test and showed the family it was met with rave reviews (and trust me, they will tell me when they don't like something!) so that made me happy!
I hope you'll head over to The Friday Mashup blog to see what the rest of the DT came up with an then play along with us! Because we have team members attending the CHA conference in CA this challenge will last for 2 weeks. We'll be back to our weekly schedule starting Jan.15.
