Framed scene 4 + ribbon borders


I have another framed scene for you today, this time it’s a night time cityscape. I tell ya, I’m having a whale of a time creating cut files, I have some border designs for threading ribbon through for you today, One is a plain border and the other two have scalloped edges, I hope you like them :)

I started my image by masking the cityscape and the moon (I printed the image again on printer paper, cut out the area I wanted to mask and stuck in place with re-positionable tape) then sponging the sky with various distress inks. I removed the masking paper and coloured the buildings with copics then applied some sakura stardust pen to the little stars to add some sparkle. I cut the scallop looped ribbon border and threaded my organza ribbon trough it and followed card patterns sketch for my card layout.

      I have a CraftRobo which is the British name for Silhouette and as for the card stock I’m not sure what weight that particular cardstock was but I normally cut card from 160 to 280gsm which I think is about 110 to 190lbs depending on whether it’s a matting layer or card base.

      Hope this helps :)
