Simon Says - Travel/Cityscape

I've dusted down the Craft Robo and been having a play. I had downloaded the Toronto cityscape some time ago with the idea of using it on a scrapbook page when I finally get round to scrapping our holiday from almost 3 years ago now. We started the tour of the Fall colours in Toronto and ended in New York.It was a fantastic holiday and one we intend to repeat some time .Anyway back to crafting, when I saw the challenge at Simon Says I straight away thought of this scene. After 3 attempts at brayering the background, which all went in the bin I finally used some colour dusters (like little shaving brushes) which were lurking at the back of a drawer.

Not perfect but I'm quite pleased with the result. Tomorrow you'll get to see the mess I made while creating it!


  1. Fabulous card Sue :-) I love this skyline and will pop back tomorrow to see the mess :-)

    thanks for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge

  2. What a beautiful sky and skyline! Fantastic, Sue!

  3. Fabulous result Sue - I do have a better relationship with my duster brushes too and this is gorgeous!

    But, if you hop over here http://calligraphycards-shazinoz.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/basic-brayer-tips-it-is-do-able.html you'll find a little video that Shaz In Oz did a little while ago. I found it really helpful.

    Hugs, Di xx Off to check out your mess next :)

  4. Thanks Di - will check it out later. I.ve done brayering before without any problems but the cards were smaller which I think probably made it easier.
