In my attempt to use my Altnew Sketchy Cities America to play along at Retro Sketches this week, I ended up with 3 cards. None of them are really true to the sketch, but I will post the the one that came closest. I was aiming for something that had a big circle (oval) cut out, with selective water coloring. I had a lot of trouble pulling this idea off.
This is the last card I made, and it is closest to the idea that was floating around in my head. I used PTI reinkers and a water brush to color the buildings, and then topped it all with Wink of Stella. The oval is cut with Lil Inker Stitched Oval dies and popped up with foam tape.
Here are my other two attempts.
This is the one I am entering at Retro Sketches, as it is the closest to the sketch. (Is it close enough?)
I am (apparently) obsessed with city and skyline stamps, so I am happy I ended up with three cards, even though my attempt to follow the sketch this week was a bit of a fail.
Thanks for Visiting
