Newspaper Skyline

Hi ya, all! Here is a card that I made for the "Clean & Simple" challenge over at Hero Arts Blog and for Kristina's Inspiration challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog.


I also used one of the sketches provided for this month's challenge from Hero Arts Blog. And yes, glitter once again! =) I honestly don't love playing with loose glitters, but this is such a fun technique and the outcome is totally worth it.


The cardstock is first trimmed to size and covered with Scor-Tape, the top corners are then rounded then glitter added after peeling off the backing paper. The Newspaper Skyline from Hero Arts is stamped with Jet Black archival ink then mounted on the scallop die-cut Smokey Shadow cardstock. The sentiment from Heyday set is stamped with Pure Poppy then cut out.

That's all for now. Have a happy day, my friends! =)


Thanks for stopping by!
