MFT September Release Countdown--Day 1

One more sleep until the September release at My Favorite Things
and all new products will go on sale tomorrow, September 1st at 10pm EST!
Have you got your wish lists ready?

Today I'm sharing two cards using a new Die-namics skyline die.
The cool thing about the skyline dies is that you can use them in either landscape
or portrait format. On my first card, I die cut the Die-namics New York Skyline
from watercolor paper and colored it in rainbow order with Zig Clean Color markers.

After the inks were dry, I spattered a bit of white ink over and popped it up onto
a Grout Gray card base. I added a strip of dark gray diagonal striped paper
and the sentiment is from Adventure is Calling.

On the next card, I trimmed the skyline to fit the card in portrait format.
The skyline was painted with Zig markers and popped up on the bottom
of a Grout Gray card base.

A strip of black striped diagonal paper was added to the bottom, and I flicked
white paint over the card. Some white stars were added and the sentiment
is also from Adventure is Calling.

Head over to today's countdown post at MFT for links to the other participating
designers and leave a comment there for your chance to win prizes!

Thanks for stopping by today and hope to see you tomorrow
for the New Product Launch and Release!
