You do too much... - CSCC68

Hi There!
Well, I hope you are having a great Sunday. Mine is going well. It has been a pretty quiet weekend around here and so I took the opportunity to try out the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #68. The movie for this challenge is Spiderman. Now, I have seen them all and I like them. But this one challenge did present me with some obstacles. My mind was set on using this quote from the movie, "You do too much. You're not Superman you know," Peter Parker's Grandmother said this to him. I know the movie is sort of a drama, but after all, it's based on a comic book. So I went for the comedic side of it. The little super hero is a stamped image from My Favorite Things. I stamped him once in his regular state on white cardstock. Then the twist in the challenge was to use a little or a lot of acetate. So I stamped his super hero costume on the acetate and then used Copics to color. I cut my spider with my Cricut and colored with Spica. The web is an embossing folder, but it was a rak I. I highlighted the web with my glittery silver gel pen. The little boy was adhered directly to the web. The acetate is attached with red brads. I like that it is transparent, that way you can see the little boy behind the costume. The spider and the sentiment are raised off the acetate with foam dots. The base of my card is from Basic Grey.
This is the sentiment inside my card...
