Morgan and Parker especially love Superman ice cream.* Sweet and colorful swirls of pink, yellow and blue ice cream is their go-to flavor. I can't blame them. My sister and I loved it as kids too. Ah, memories.
When I got a hold of the Sandlot Cut Files from In A Creative Bubble, I was inspired to experiment with my Neocolor crayons and recreate the Superman look for a card in my Project Life.
I love playing with these crayons. Even if I'm not always sure what direction to take, what look I'm hoping for, or what the "right way" to do it is. I say, just start.
I've put together a step-by-step tutorial with photos on how I created this watercolor background and it's available for download here. I love when experiments are successful and I hope you'll give it a try too!
Supplies used : watercolor paper, kraft cardstock, Sandlot Cut File by In A Creative Bubble, water brush (or small paint brush and cup of water), neocolors (raspberry red, lemon yellow and turquoise blue), paper towel.
*I only recently found out that this flavor is not widely available! I've lived in Michigan my entire life and have known about Superman ice cream almost as long, so I was shocked when I read that this flavor isn't as popular as I thought. Hmm, you're missing out. If you're ever in my neck of the woods, I'll buy you a scoop. :)
