UPTOWN - Sun is Shining

October 3, 2016 Heart 2 Heart we are going UPTOWN! ...what is uptown? It could be anything you consider uptown, is it a night out on the town, is it the City Scapes paper, it is Uptown Girl by Billy Joel or Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars. When you hear "uptown" what do you think of and share it with us!  Check out the design team creations to inspire you.

Looking at City Scape images and clipart on computer there was one photo, that caught my eye with a fantastic sunrise or sunset behind City Scapes.  So off to Cricut Design Space...however, did not find the die-cut proceeded to make my own.  Then even thought about making my own City Scape, however found a couple in Cricut Design Space dies that would be a lot less work.  

My background sky was water colored using yellows and oranges to create the brilliance of the sky, and then Wink of Stella added to the rays.  

The Eiffel Tower is a stamp and then fussy-cut and layered with a shadow of black. My dream of one day seeing the Eiffel Tower; however, the closest I will get to that is Las you can decide whether this is Las Vegas or Paris City Scape...nonetheless both Uptown.   

The City Scapes and Eiffel Tower were all adhered with 3D thin foam tape for a very dimensional look.  

This is the inside of my card using one of the negatives of my City Scape die-cut. 

Sentiment stamped on White Daisy cardstock and then water colored to match the sky.
