Inspired by Buffalo

I had a chance to take a virtual vacation this year with some online friends; we took turns offering "tours" of our hometowns to one another, and then issued challenges inspired by our stops. This card was inspired by Jacqueline's tour of Buffalo, NY. I used purple because Buffalo is known as "The Queen City" and purple is a royal color! I also used a couple of misting techniques in deference to the mists of Niagara falls. The stamp image was misted with water before inking to give the image a slight water-colored look. The cuttlebugged layer was misted with Smooch shimmer spritz for some sparkle!
