City Skyline

As soon as I saw this skyline image from one of the Doodle Factory releases, I knew I had to make a sunset skyline card. Taking some tips from Michelle Zindorf , I decided to get out the brayer, some clear embossing powder, some pencil crayons, and some ink pads. Then I got to work. I stamped the image, then coloured it in with Prismacolor pencil crayons. I only used a black pencil crayon for the buildings and an orange pencil crayon for the windows. After that was done, I covered the entire image with a versamarker and embossed it with clear powder. Then I chose my colours for the sky. I started with Summer Sun, then Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red, and just a touch of Not Quite Navy. I framed the image on black cardstock, and placed that on a white card base. I liked it too much to add anything else to it. I really like how it turned out!

Stamps: Doodle Factory Urban
Ink: Versafine Black, Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red, Not Quite Navy
