I can't get buildings out of my Mind! After I made the first card, I just couldn't stop building cards with (yep) buildings. The base cardstock is black with a panel covered with gold wrapping paper. My May 31st post gives the low-down on making the card, but I couldn't stop. The wrapping is quite reflective and catches colors surrounding it. Even after these, I still wanted to do more. I checked the Hero Arts June sketches and was wondering how to work at least one building into it. I thought maybe I could turn one of the sketches upside down and BLAM! There it was perfect for a CAS card. See if you can identify the sketch I turned upside down. The card uses the colors of the French flag of blue, white, and red. A friend wanted a card to send to his friends in France and I thought I'd use the colors for the building colors. GOOD IDEA! I entered the card below in the Hero Arts Flickr June challenge under the sketch portion of the challenge. I imagine you're going to see more buildings.
. I used the wonderful Hero Arts Newspaper Skyline (S5573) and the new set Heyday Thoughts (330054). I don't think I can make a card without using a distress ink. the blue on blue paper is Faded Jeans and the red on red is Fired Brick. I embossed black paper with white embossing powder for the black and white building. I really like the way this turned out, but was tempted to add something else, didn't but was severely tempted.
