Urban Landscape


I'm playing along with a couple of challenges for fun today, and getting to use some NBUS.  My first bit of NBUS is the Tim Holtz Cityscape Skyline die set.  I cut them from mixed media paper and dipped and smooshed them in pools of Distress Oxides.  Once they'd dried I adhered them to my card and added a strip of my second bit of NBUS, this fabulous Tube washi tape.  Cool, eh?

I'm entering this into Inkspirational - Urban

and The Male Room - Die Cuts.

  9. I'm so far behind in commenting, I don't even know where to being to catch up; life has elevated to 'high hectic'. Yeesh! Hope the thought bubbles of awe have arrived! And speaking of awe: I'm captivated by your artsy cityscape and pairing it with the 'tube' washi...absolutely genius! I second Darnell: mod and spectacular, indeed! So thrilled you shared your artistry in the INK gallery!
    Hugs~c
