STAMPTACULAR #128 Sketch - Stamp Something for Crafty Emma in Basic Grey

This week at at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Priscilla has given us this fabulous sketch to use. You are free to flip it, twist it or turn it any way that works for you AND as long as we can see the original sketch in your finished masterpiece! Oh…and don’t forget to stamp!  After all, we don’t call this STAMPtacular for nothing!  Our prize this week is a $20 gift certificate from the fabulous Simon Says Stamp.
I made my card for best matey - Julie's son's 21st birthday.  He is a big traditional comic book fan and I chose this Marvel image of The Incredible Hulk which I altered a little from a web-based colouring page here. 
I coloured my image in Copics and Promarkers cut it out and then embossed his muscles with an embossing tool to give them more depth and used silicone glue beneath him.  I have also popped his head and fist with an extra layer of the same image.    My film strip is a die cut from Lakeland plastics. The sentiments within each film frame are Word processed and the "21" is cut with my Cricut.  My papers are Basic Grey Green at Heart and the sentiments on the right within the partial nestie cut frames are from a K-oligy sticker that I cut down to fit.

I am entering my card into
Basic Grey's "celebrations" challenge
Stamp Something "anything goes"
Crafty Emma's "Magical or Spooky"

Hi Lesley, a marvel-ous card! Love how you've teamed the green with the purple & perfectly complemented with the backing paper. You really do make the most fabulous cards with so much thought into them! xx
