Big City Wish

Happy Friday!
And happy LAST day of September! Yikes! Where has this year gone? Don't look now... Christmas is right around the corner. I'm going to play Scarlett O'Hara and think about that tomorrow. Or the next day. For today, I have a fairly easy card to share. I used the colors from the Splitcoast color challenge because I thought they would be pretty behind a black silhouette skyline. The colors are a dark purply raspberry, plum & lt gray. I die cut a white background, taped off the edges all around, then sponged on a combination of inks to try to get close to the colors. Then I stamped the Starry Bg first in the plum ink, then again in the white pigment ink across the top. 
The black city skyline & white silhouette behind it were added at the bottom & then I put into my Misti & inked only the BIG w/ a black marker & stamped it 3 times to get good coverage. The Wish was die cut once out of white & once out of black & stacked together to add on top of the BIG. The lt gray layer was die cut & added underneath. 

Here's a look at the inside. I used the negative of the die cut as a mask & sponged the city silhouette across the bottom.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
