An Affair to Remember

Happy New Year everybody!

After winning the Audrey Award of the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge last week, I wanted to take part in this week's challenge, too: An Affair to Remember. Now I'm a little bit late, nevertheless... I love this movie, and I was inspired from the New York skyline and wanted to use this stamp which has been laying in my drawer for years (I don't know the manufacturer, maybe Lost Coast Designs, but I'm not sure about that, sorry!) ... I stamped it with Palette Noir ink onto some glossy cardstock and heatset the ink. Then I brushed some highlights on the buildings with Teykol (a resist medium), then sponged the background with Adirondack inks. I hope I could catch the sunset mood... I added a metallic heart brad on which I wrote "My Love Affair" with a white jelly pen. The background card is cuttlebug embossed.
