Captain America Inspired Card
So for anyone who knows me personally, it isn't a surprise that I am a big fan of comic book films. My Husband and I recently went to the movies and saw Captain America: Winter Soldier. First off the movie was good, so you should check it out as it worth seeing in theaters. I made this card with a Captain America feel for the following challenges: Sketch Saturday #305, Addicted to CAS #36, and Daring Cardmakers "Flag it Up." Here is the process I went through to make this card: Cut several strips of Real Red and Whisper White CS and make sure they fit together then adhere to the card base. I hand cut the star and covered it in chunky gold glitter to match the gold embossing. and although America isn't that far from Canada Captain America and Hollywood are. -Although I wish Chris Evans was nearer ;) -
I initially wanted the colors to match Captain America's new darker costume from SHEILD, but I still wanted to keep the flag theme so I went with the original comic book colours seen here.
Here is a close-up of the sparkle and shine.
Here is the sketch and Inspiration for this card.
