Evening in the city

The latest challenge at The Male Room is -scapes - cityscapes, landscapes, seascapes etc. Normally I would automatically have reached for Tim Holtz's Cityscapes set, a set I really love, but DT member Deborah has already used that set to make such a fab card I couldn't compete! So I had to have a rethink and this is what I came up with


The city skyline stamp is an Art Impressions one, stamped and embossed in black. I coloured in the windows with a yellow marker and the street floor with a grey one, brushing over the grey randomly with a wet water brush to give those eerie long shadows you get in the early evening. The water brush was also used with distress ink to paint the sky, then a few tiny dots of white gel pen added to show the stars just beginning to come out.
