Skyline inspiration

This card was inspired by a photo of a downtown city skyline at sunset. The photo was this month's inspiration piece for the monthly Dirty Dozen Fan Club challenges at Splitcoast. I love being a fan club member - it's a great way to give back to a site that gives me so much, and the monthly Dirty Dozen galleries and challenges are so fun. The brayered background on the card uses an ancient Serenade spectrum ink pad by Tsukineko. Eight or nine years ago (aack! I can't believe it's been that long!) I was living in Indiana and there was a small scrapbooking/stamping store near the Hobby Lobby I frequented. One day the store had all these spectrum pads on sale for like $3 each and I thought they were a steal. I still have them all - I think I got six in a rainbow of colors. They are great for brayering backgrounds like this.
