Master Procrastinator!

I had started this card for Moxie Fab World's Cityscapes are on the rise challenge. I had stamped, masked, and colored the scene, but then life intervened as it has a habit of doing.

I finally created a card with the colored scene. Alas, it was too late for the Moxie Fab World challenge as well as the SCS Technique Tuesday forum's "new stuff" challenge.

Here it is!

The ship from Technique Tuesday's All Aboard set was stamped, then masked. I positioned the cityscape, which is #10 from the Queen of Tarts collection by Character Constructions. Then I peeled off the masks and colored the scene with Copic markers. Then I put the whole thing aside for several weeks while I did other stuff (some creative, some not).

When I finally got the chance, I found a scrap of old map patterned paper by Rusty Pickle. I used hempy twine stuff and tied sailors knots. The "Sea You Soon" sentiment is from the Homeward Bound set by Bombshell Stamps. I diecut it, pounded an eyelet, and attached it with more hemp.

Thanks for visiting today!
