I love city skylines, especially when it comes to crafting. I've got several dies, stamps and even some ribbon decorated with them.
For this one I've used a die that my husband bought me - I think it was from Marianne Creatables - which I always seem to use as a silhouette, cutting it from black card, but this time I wanted to try something different.
I smooshed turquoise, magenta and yellow distress inks onto a large acrylic block (I find it easier to see where the ink is that way than doing it on a craft mat) and spritzed with water then pressed white card onto it and used the resulting card for the die cutting. I couldn't stay away from the black though - this time I used it as a background. I think it sets off the colours really well.
The sentiment is stamped using a stamp from the new Dovecraft "Kiss and Make Up" collection. It's absolutely HUGE, isn't it? Well, Paris is, after all, the city of love!
