Think Big!

The cue word for this week’s Casology challenge is ‘big’ and I thought it would be a great opportunity to play with my fabulous Cityscape dies from Altenew. Alas, EVERYTHING went wrong with this card, and it took me ages to create. I should’ve known it wasn’t going to be easy when the dies weren’t where they should’ve been…. the packaging was, just no dies!

I was sorely tempted to enter yesterday’s HUGE card into the challenge, but I persevered and I’m glad I did! The dies are fun to play with!

I created my own shimmer paper for the buildings using some Tonic Studios Embellishment Mousse. Unfortunately, it had dried up, but I added some water and it seemed to be fine! I also used my Prismacolor pencils to create the background – really unusual for me as I usually rely on my distress inks for that. It was good to practice with my pencils!

I feel I need to add a sentiment to the top right – like I did the first time I used this die set. I’ve seen the ‘perfect’ stamp and it will be going in my basket the next time I place an order!

Thanks for stopping by!
