Fractured Sky

Hi! I hope you are having a good day. I was not sure how to name this card. You can see why I called it Fractured Sky. I found this background in my stash where I had stamped the Just For Fun Broken Mosaic background stamp on watercolor paper and added clear embossing powder. I then dropped various colors of Distress inks into the open spaces and let them blend together using my water pen. Next I stamped the Skyline Silhouette stamp on white card stock using blue ink and fussy cut it. This stamp reminds me of the New York City skyline and the song New York! I pop dotted that to the background. I found the balloon embellishment in my stash and adhered it to a blue circle punched backing.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Please join the Just For Fun challenge this month which is to use more than one stamp! We would love to see your creations! Have a great day!

This is such an amazing card! The mosaic work you did in the background is really stunning. The color palette is soothing and kept things looking just perfect! The skyline is arranged so nicely with the fragmented background and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
