This weeks challenge from Cynthia over at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog is 'New York, New York' and as I'd missed the deadline for the challenge last week I decided to be more organised this week. I've never been to New York and I'm not likely to as Im a real home bird but when I think of New York, i think of the skyline, parties and glamourous ladies in their finery and here is my card inspired by Cynthia's challenge:
The sky is made by brayering some glossy card with orange and yellow dye inks and overstamping with a starry sky stamp from Non Sequitur. The skyline is cut on my Cricut. The lady is actually a bride stamp from Joanna Sheen stamped and coloured her hair and skin with promarkers then the bottom part of her dress with sakura stardust in orange. I carefully cut her out to remove her veil and paper pieced the rest of her dress with some paper from Artylicious 'Decadent Delights' CD and highlighted the butterflies with some more sakura stardust. The moon is also from Non Sequitur stamped in black versafine and coloured with yellow stampbord ink before being triple embossed. To finish off, a sentiment from Joanna Sheen embossed with Tequila Sunrise EP.
I'm also entering this card into this weeks challenge from the lovely ladies over at CD Sunday which is 'Elegant Ladies' and The Pink Elephant where the challenge is to use Orange
I'm taking some time owing after being so busy at work for the last couple of weeks and having the day off today. Its bliss to get up on a Monday and not dash off to work. especially as it looks like another lovely day. Enjoy the sunshine if you can and thanks for looking
