I used a photo to create a pattern. Obviously, I had to rework things to make it 2 dimensional for a card, and then I paper pieced the Iron Man mask using gold, black, and deep red cardstocks. The eyes are cut from white and then highlighted with marker to create a sort of glowing look. Yes. I love this card. I believe that goes without saying. But I said it anyway. Just in case. For reals, though.
I didn't want to go with just any old sentiment on this card, so, naturally, I pulled a quote directly from the Iron Man movies to use as a sentiment. It's pretty much perfect. I used some cute tiny alphabet stamps from Stampendous to stamp it in gold Delicata ink from Tsukineko so that it is incorporated into the design well.
Seriously, though... I'm not sure I could have had more fun with a card. I love Marvel movies, as some of you know all too well, and I SUPER love Iron Man and Avengers movies, so this one, well, this one is just about awesome. For reals. SO MUCH FUN to make!
Have a Happy!
