When the Dark Knight Rises

Hi everyone,

A new Monday has arrived and Simon Says Stamp and Show has a new challenge for us! But first  I just wanna say that I really had fun with the blog hop! Thank you so much for all of you who took part at it and left a lovely comment! I also wanna thank Simon Says Stamp for this amazing adventure and gratulate them again with their 10th anniversary! Okay, back to business, the challenge of this week is Heroes. It can be superheroes, your personal hero, your favorite Hero Arts Stamp. Let your creative juices flowing! I'm a real movie fanatic and I've chosen the latest Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises as my inspiration.

This was a great oppertunity to use a canvas. It took a while before I got really into it, but soon I got the hang of it a bit. The first layer I made by applying paint with bubble wrap, and built more layers from that. I had so much fun decorating the canvas. I used lots and lots of Multi Medium to stick everything down. Especially the ball chain was difficult to stick to the canvas, but I did it! The logo, the bat, I found it as regular image in the internet and traced it with Silhouette Studio, and cut out with my Silhouette Cameo. The same I did with the letters.
What I love about working with a canvas is that it is so forgiving. If something went wrong, just add a new coat of paint or gesso over it, and start over. Awesome!

To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!
