When a Sketch is Perfect!!!

 Hello family, friends and followers, it's time for a new challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers and here to tell you all about it is one of Lee's famous graphics.

L is for Layers

Now I love layers the more the merrier but wow do they cost when you take them to the post office, When I saw Mojo Monday's sketch for March I knew it was perfect for what I wanted to do, although some of my layers are a bit off as my image was larger than the posted size. That is what is perfect about Mojo Monday the measurements are on the sketch. First I decided that it had to be a square card to fit everything.

First cut the three skyline dies in both black and white to offset for dimension I popped te middle line up and cut a frame which I elevated at the bottom but flat attached at the top. I blended three colours of Distress Oxide ink to make the sky. Then followed the sketch.

closer look at the buildings and sky

No snark today on my card, as I mentioned on my wolf post I have 6 masculine birthday cards to make every year for family this is #2 finished ready for giving (too heavy to mail) I love this sentiment and it works perfect for a "sun" card.

I'm entering this in;

Mojo Monday Sketch ~~ March

AAA Birthday Challenge ~~ Game 23 Patterned Paper

What a fab make, Barb! Love all the layers and that sky is amazing. If I tried to make a card like this I'd get a stress nosebleed (I can only do CAS) but you carry it off beautifully and create a stunner! Jo x

Gorgeous late afternoon sky for your triple skyline of buildings, Barbara! The offset layering is brilliant. And I knew there was a reason I gave up on Mojo Monday sketches - so many layers! :D

I'm a total sucker for a city skyline, either in crafting or in real life, so I really love this. Great use of the sketch too.
