CASology – [Skyline] at Night

There is still time to play along with the CASology challenge – SKYLINE!

I thought I’d post some more inspiration for you:

This time I used a die to create the skyline. I first took a large panel of grey cardstock and did partial die-cutting to get the skyline across the top (the die actually cuts the bottom edge too). Then I did more partial with the stitched rectangle as I didn’t want the stitches going up into the buildings.

There are actually 2 dies, one does the outline and windows, the other is just the outline. I used both dies, but for the yellow solid one, I did trim it down so none of the yellow could be seen except through the windows.

I added some sparkle to the card base (masked the edge so that it was an “extension” of the skyline panel). I also added some acrylic paint spots. Here is a closeup:

I wasn’t sure what sentiment to use. This one worked – and it let me add a moon (which was good because the paint stars seemed more like snow and adding the moon made it look better to me).

And those with eagle eyes may have spied that I used my sketch from when I hosted at CC&S in January.

You have another week to get your card made – hope you join us!

Thanks for stopping by!

i love you
