Cityscapes

Cath over at Moxie Fab World put forth a new challenge called The Cityscapes are on the Rise. I had created this skyline image awhile ago and it was sitting in my scraps box. I loved  the colors but set it aside as I had no inspiration for the design of the card.  Here is the end result.


The skyline was on one piece and I ended up cutting it into two circles and making a third circle to complete the design.   The skyline image is from B Line Designs and the map is from Cornish Heritage Farms and the sentiment Hero Arts. The images were stamped with Versafine Smokey Gray and clear embossed. The skyline is a combination of black dye ink and Rangers Distress Inks Wild Honey.  

Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I've missed a few lovely creations again Sue but these last two are my favourites.

    I love the colours you have used for the sky on this card. It's very unusual but so effective and the layout of the card is really inspirational.
