The Rick Mercer photo challenge

So, I was supposed to do the Rick Mercer challenge where I post a picture of Stephen Harper’s face onto anything I want.

Here are my results, enjoy!

superman copy

So this is the first picture. I chose to put his face on superman because I just thought that his face would merge nicely into the picture. I selected his face and copy and pasted it into the background. I blurred it a bit and changed the color of his face slightly.

I decided to put his face here because I thought it would look funny. I cut out his face pasted it into the background and changed the color setting. Then I blurred it so it would fit in better.
