Concord & 9th – City Stacks

Concord & 9th – City Stacks

I’ve been doing a lot of drawing lately, which you will have noticed if you follow me on Instagram! Since Paper Crafts Crew’s last challenge was for 2 weeks and Fab Friday had a challenge last week, I really had no cards to make this weekend and spent the weekend working on a sketch for a painting for a commission I’m doing. I’ve also been making drawings that I can’t show anyone yet, but I will have something exciting to announce at some point in the future!

I decided to take a break from drawing yesterday afternoon and make a card. I was so excited when I saw this set from Concord & 9th…it’s just the sort of thing I like.

I decided since I’m really getting back into watercolors to do another watercolor card, but this time I grabbed my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors to do this. Lookie:

GOJUS! I have so many friends I could send this to. Now that I’m not doing SU! I don’t travel and see all my wonderful friends I made as a demonstrator, but they are still very much in my mind and my heart.

I painted a rainbow for the buildings and went over every other one with black. I die cut the buildings out with the matching die.

To do the stars, I first tried painting them with the white pain from the Kuretake Gansai Tambi set, but it didn’t show up enough. So I used a Sakura white gel pen instead and then added Sakura Stardust pen over top.

When this was done, it needed something more, so since I was having a Sakura pen party, I grabbed my Sakura Clear Glaze pen and put glass in all these windows! It looks quite cool!

This turned out so cute and cool…I can see I am going to have such fun with these stamps and dies!

  • Such a beautiful scene. I love this set from Concord and 9th and you have created a very pretty scene with it. Really really love the colors and texture of the sky with the stars. Thank you so much for joining us on Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. xx Ankita
