I decided to use the Layered Cityscape die. I thought it would be so fun to create a really colorful skyline with a bold black outline. 
You know how I love my black outlines :) 

I die cut the die twice, once from black and once from white. 


After I popped the white pieces out I used my distress inks and ink blender to add random color to the pieces. I didn't pay attention to see if they matched. I overlapped some colors. I actually love the stained glass look it created. 

Before you head off to the next amazing project don't forget to leave some love. I'll picking a comment randomly from this post to win a $30 gift certificate to Altenew. All entries must be in by April 12th and 11:59pm.
