My Batty Hero

My grandson loves Batman. Well, actually he LOVES Mike The Knight, but Batman is a very close second.
So I just had to make him a Batman themed card when I found this perfect image; My Batty Hero by Tiddly Inks...

I've coloured him using promarkers, and kept to an all black & grey batman, because apparently he is better than a blue batman, haha!
The yellow starry paper is from Doodlebug, Hip Hip Hooray paper pad. I added some extra punched stars from silver mirror card, and a number 4 cut with my Die-namics By The Number dies.
'Grandson' was also cut using Die-namics dies (By The Letter)
I lightly sponged in a sky in the background on the card base so that it would show through the oval aperture I cut from the top layer. Then I die cut the cityscape die from Clearly Besotted Stamps 3 times from different coloured card and trimmed off the tops on 2 of them to make them look a little different. I then stuck yellow card stock to the back of the 'windows' so that it would look like the lights were on. I layered and glued these down on top of the sponged sky, then added my top layer with the starry paper.
Hope he likes it!
