Inspired by Pinterest

 Today is Thursday! Another Inspired by Pinterest fun challenge. This is a scheduled post as I am currently driving to Perth. It is school holidays and a few days away to the city will give me a good break. Also we wanted to show my in-laws Perth City and the surrounds. 
Anyway, this is the picture, I was inspired by this week.

I love the cityscape with sky/cloud painted inside the silhouettes. Just darn innovative and artistic. I wanted to recreate it the moment I saw it. I am not good with paints but tried my best :)
So here is my interpretation of the inspirational picture.

Cardstock: Stamps Select White from PTI
Pattern Paper: Basic Grey White Basic and Pink Gelato from Kaisercraft
Stamp Set: Birthday Inside Out from PTI
Inks: Tempting Turquoise, Pixie Pink and Perfect Plum from SU, Stazon Black Ink
Accessories: Tag from PTI, Citiscape die from MFT, Silhouette die from Marianne Design Creatables Charleston Lady, rhinestones from PTI and twine from twinery.

I was digging through my supplies and came upon some paper pads which I forgot I had. Lucky for me, Kaisercraft's Pink Gelato papers coordinated beautifully with the colours of the evening sky on the silhouette. So after a very long time, I have used pattern papers on my card. And shocking to me, I have used pastel colours! They do look nice. I don't know why but I do not use pastel colours so much. I love bright colours a lot. But every now and then I surprise myself and use pastel colours. Love it. Hope you do too.

What I did with the silhouette is, I layered cityscape dies and adhered them under the silhouette piece. Cut a scrap paper the same size as the silhouette die cut piece. I placed it under the silhouette piece and marked the outline of the silhouette. Then I painted blue and violet colours on the scrap paper. When dry, I adhered the two pieces together. Isn't it beautiful?  Wish I drew some birdies. But I am happy with what it is now.

I am submitting this card for Papercraft April Gallery Challenge :)
