Sound of a Superhero

Hello.  Welcome.  Many moons ago I purchased a goody box.  I always hope that these cheap lucky dips will yield a real treasure, and they often do, but along with the treasure there is usually a turkey.  In this particular box were some Kanban paper craft toppers.  Now I have nothing against such things, they do some really pretty ones, but these particular ones were super tiny heroes - good and bad guys.  Well!!  Just not my thing.  Pow! Bish! Bash! Uff!  Stick them in a dusty corner......  And then a light at the end of the tunnel.  Jenn over at Wicked Wednesday says show me your superheroes!!  Well, blow me down and stand me back up again.  I immediately grabbed these toppers and, after some fussy cutting and a bit of this and that........

Meet Super Tiny Frog.  He was going to be leaping a tall building but I couldn't find one small enough.   Instead he's showing his muscles lifting Sizzix Movers and Shapers Jalopy.  Now I got all excited cos I though I could emboss this with the Artful Muse Jalopy embossing folder.  Unfortunately there is a size difference that is ascetically displeasing.  Unwilling to be deterred I decided to do a bit of old fashioned embossing and improvisation.  So I set the front wheel in place in the embossing folder and using my ball tool got some detail.  Then I moved the die cut to align the back wheel and used the ball tool again.  Then I moved the die cut again, oh you get the idea.  I think it was quite successful.  A swipe or two with DI Walnut Stain and ta dah.  The words are also fussy cut from the topper sheets.  Not sure what a Plunk! is.  Maybe that's the noise when Super Tiny Frog drops Jalopy on his head!!  My ATC was one I cut the other day from a DI experiment failure.  I added VersaMagic chalk around the edge to give a bit more Biff!  Or maybe that's Boff!  Never really understood Superhero speak....
