The difference is night and day!

As a (retired) city planner, this Hero Arts stamp (Silly Scape, K5425) is a particular favorite. I decided to challenge myself to make two cards – same stamps, same layout – one depicting the city by night, the other, the city by day. This is my night city, with lots of rich layers and shadows. I stamped the city several times on coordinating cardstock (7 Gypsies), cut out sections and layered (up to 5 layers) to create depth and shading. I love how well the font of this sentiment stamp (CL148) goes with the crazy building lines. Vintage buttons and Nestie frames were added to complete the card. The next post is the daytime version.
