Simon Says - Cityscape

Hi my friends, I'm sharing my DT project for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you will join us this week to because

and the theme this week is
I created a New York Skyline Christmas card for a special friend using the beautiful sentiment from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Christmastime 2 along with an old favourite, Sizzix Cityscape Skyline and images from Seasonal Scribbles, heat embossed with Simon Says Antique Gold.

I began by die-cutting a large circle mask, fixed to a panel of Distress Watercolor card and used Black Soot, Stormy Sky and Wild Honey Distress Oxide Sprays to create a moody sky background.
I removed the mask, sprayed around the circle area with water to reactivate the ink and let it run over the moon. 
I inked the sentiment from Christmastime 2 and the snowflake from Seasonal Scribbles with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Simon Says Antique Gold. I sprinkled the background with Stampendous Shabby White Embossing Enamel and heat set from underneath.
I die-cut Tim Holtz/Sizzix Skyline from white and Classic Metallic KraftStock and layered to create my cityscape.
I die-cut a small circle from white card and stamped the house image from Seasonal Scribbles inked with Versamark and heat embossed with Simon Says Stamp Antique Gold.
To finish I matted the circle on to a slightly large circle die-cut heat embossed with Antique Gold, added an Idea-ology ChitChat sticker, added the panel to layers of Metallic Kraftstock and black card and fixed to a 5" x 7" white card blank.
