It's the man of Steel: Superman!

Ever since a young child I have loved Superman. I so enjoy watching the old Christopher Reeve Superman movies. At last I have been able to do a tribute card to my favorite super hero and also I at last have a Birthday card appropriate for males although I am sure there are some women Superman fans who would appreciate this card as well.

For this card I used a free super hero blue background, the original colour was quite dark so I lightened it giving the background a more CAS look. The Superman image was purchased from Anything cards on Etsy. I printed the image so that the cape went over the edge of the card. I also printed the cape separately and paper-pieced it onto the original image so as to give the main image some movement. I really enjoyed making this card and glad I got the opportunity to share it with you.
