Hi everyone! Lexa here with a pretty city scene using the City Streets stamp and coordinating dies. Honestly, I wasn't sure what should I do with this stamp set at first glance. I mean look how detailed and tiny all the elements are--I might get in some trouble coloring them. BUT...everything changed when I started to imagine how I would like the buildings to look. It reminds me my college time. Did you know that I majored in architecture? So yeah, this set has some kind of special connection with me. I'm wondering if some of you will understand how I feel. :)
I love spending time with my girls. Time pasts really fast every time I'm with them. That's the inspiration for today's card...Hanging out until the sun sets with a pretty pink sky like the ones often seen from where I live. I blended Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks on smooth white cardstock as my background. I'm still learning the how-to blend them smoothly. I also flicked some water for the white spots.
All the images are stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and watercolored with Distress Markers. I use a super fine tip brush and had to be extra careful so the inks won't bleed. Instead of using black cardstock for the street, I choose black polka-dot patterned paper. I love anything in polka-dots. Hehe. For a last touch I used some Wink of Stella glitter and glossy accent on every window.
I hope you like it. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
