But enough about Seattle and football. Here are the card details (all supplies in italics are CTMH):
- Stamp set: Cityscapes
- Ink pads: Black pigment, Juniper, Sunset, Smokey Plum, Honey
- Marker: Cranberry, White gel pen (to create "stars")
I stamped the city skyline in Black pigment ink because I wanted full, rich coverage. I had to wait about fifteen minutes before putting my masks over the top to sponge the sky, but it was worth the time and effort. I used a sponge dauber for the Honey colored "lights" in the buildings. I wasn't terrible fussy about getting good coverage because a little shade variation made it more interesting. The sky was done with dye ink pads and sponge daubers to give it a streaky effect.
The final step was to mount the image onto a white mat and foam mount it onto a white card. The white mat against white card is just classy looking.
I'm going to stretch just a little and link this to the Heart2Heart challenge. This week's assignment is to use the letters C-T-M-H in your project.
C=Cityscapes stamp set
T=Twilight...not the ink color but the image is a city at twilight. (Told you I was going to stretch a little.)
And now back to our regularly scheduled lunacy...
GO HAWKS! GO HAWKS! GO HAWKS! GO HAWKS!
Until next time,
