Blue Skies

Meet today's card.
I have been so super busy I haven't had time to make a card all week.  So finally today, I took a break from housework and sat down to create as I was so inspired by this card from Splitcoast Stampers.
 
The stamp I am using is a fun one from Technique Junkies.  I think it is supposed to be a New York city scene but I think it could be from any big city.
I got out my MISTI and placed my stamp inside.  I inked it up with Antique Linen Distress ink and stamped.  I then moved the stamp a bit down and to the right, inked it with Salty Ocean Distress ink and stamped again.  Finally, I adjusted the stamp again and stamped using black Memento ink.
Using a brush and some water, I blurred out the background by blending the colors together to add interest and depth to the background.


 Adding my card to these challenges:

I adore this stamp and love what you've done here. You really captured that repeating feel but it doesn't feel like the same stamp over and over. It feels like an even bigger city.
