A Touch Of Colour

Just a quick post from me today as I am working hard in the garden but I wanted to pop by with my weekly post for 100 Proof Press using the Long Tower Row stamp, along with a little colour inspiration from The Play Date Cafe.
I decided on black and white with just touches of colour from The Play Date Cafe colour inspiration.
I stamped the Long Tower Row 8 times and cut down a little from each side to create a 3dimensional tier effect to my buildings, very time consuming but well worth the effort as the dimension is fabulous.
From this angle you can see all my layers perfectly.  I then punched three squares from white card and added part of the images to each square and added to the bottom of my card.
Inspire, Imagine and Create are from Tim's Chitchat stickers.  To add a little more interest I coloured a few of my buildings with Distress Markers to match the colour story from The Play Date Cafe.
I would also like to enter my piece into the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Time for me to head back into the garden, so many jobs to do and not enough time to do them in lol!  Tracy x x
