San Francisco Cityscape

Frantic Stamper has a new die out called San Francisco Cityscape.  This is what the die looks like:

I decided to not use the bridge on this card because I wanted to focus on the skyline in order to get the shadow in the water.  I used the bridge on another card which I will show tomorrow.

For the bottom part of the background which is supposed to be the water but looks more like clouds in the sky, I dragged a Tumbled Glass distress ink dauber (the kind that is filled with the liquid ink and has a sponge top to it) across a sheet of glossy photo paper then filled in the white areas with a Wink of Stella pen.   I should have used a black ink finger dauber instead of the Wink of Stella to create a darker look to it.

The top portion is plain white cardstock and I used Stormy Sky, Spun Sugar and a little Spiced Marmalade all blended on to the paper with a blending tool.
