Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #35 - "What's Your Superpower?"

It's time for a new The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. This month we are creating projects that showcase or represent your "Superpower".  Such a fun topic. Don't let this topic scare you - maybe your superpower is creating awesome Vintage ATCs, or using Gelatos to create unusual backgrounds, or maybe using up your crafty stash.

Our Guest Designer this month is famous Comic Book Designer Brett Weldele.  Our sponsor this month is Stampers Anonymous. Our lucky random winner will get a prize package of Brett's stamps and stencils. I hope you will come play with us this month for this fun challenge!!

For my project I created a card made with stamps from a Brett Weldele Stampers Anonymous stamp set called Party Monsters. I'm showcasing my "Superpower" of using sprays. I'm an expert sprayer. I have TONS of sprays - Distress Spray Inks, Dylusions, Heidi Swapp, DecoArt and my new favorites Tattered Angels. I used Tattered Angels sprays on this card. 

To start, I black heat embossed the monster and the sentiment. Then I added some Molotow masking to the monster so I could spray over the card and not worry about ruining him.  

Then I sprayed several different colored Tattered Angels Spray Inks all over the card. 

Tattered Angels Mists

Then I painted the monster using the Glimmer Mists and paintbrush and added some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks around the edges of the monster.
