Paper Smooches for Color Throwdown 566

I am not originally from the South, but for some reason I always feel like starting my blogs with Hi Y'All! 

Today's post is for Color Throwdown #566: orange, grey and cream.

I have had this Paper Smooches city die in my stash for quite a while and I thought a city scape would be fun in these colors.
I started with a piece of My Favorite Things Cream card stock and ink blended with Range Distress Ink Spiced Marmalade. I did get one sort of splotch, but left it in anyway. Couldn't seem to blend it out. Perfection is over-rated, right?!!! 
 The city buildings were cut from Neenah white card stock and colored with a Copic Marker C5 for my grey color. 
I stamped the "Thinking of You." sentiment from the Penny Black Gentle Thoughts set with Rainy Day Hybrid Ink using my MISTI. The dog and little girl image from this Penny Black stamp set is so darling. Definitely one I want to work with soon.

To put the card together, I layered the background onto a piece of fun foam with Gina K Connect glue. Then I adhered the building flat on each side, but popped up the center with foam tape. That front card was then adhered to an A2 (4 1/4" X 5 1/2")size MFT Cement Grey card base.

Clean and simple and I really like the outcome. If you'd like to challenge yourself and expand your creativity a bit, try a card challenge, either sketch, color or both! It's really fun and usually you come up with something very new and fresh!
