Missing You

Here’s my card for this week’s sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch. It’s a pretty loose interpretation of the sketch, so I hope you can see how it fits . . .

I started with a white cardstock panel and used distress inks and a cloud template to create a nighttime sky with a line of thick cloud cover across the top. The moon was masked with a sticky note and filled in later with distress ink and a sponge. I added a gray skyscraper die cut strip along the bottom. It’s backed with a solid black version of the same die cut to give the cutout windows a dark look. One window is filled in with a tiny piece of yellow cardstock for a lit up glow.

Once the buildings were in place, I stamped the “missing you” sentiment from the My Favorite Things More Essential Sentiments set in black ink and heat embossed it. I arranged a trio of small clear crystals around the moon as stars, then set the finished panel on a gray card base.

Materials Used: 
More Essential Sentiments stamp set, Die-namics Skyline and Solid Skyline dies (My Favorite Things); Versafine Onxy Black ink (Tsukineko); Broken China, Salty Ocean, and Mustard Seed distress inks (Ranger); Basic Gray and Basic Black cardstock, black embossing powder (Stampin’ Up!); clear crystals (Michaels); cloud template
