a window scene card to use Silly Scape

Hi, there! How are you, today?
 Finally I posted a card which finished last weekend. Oh, yes, I played with the Silly Scape stamp yet. Probably the photo wasn't in good condition. (This may appears in strange colors depends on your monitor settings. Sorry!)
I'm going to submit this to the Hero Arts August challenge Round 1.

Here is a window scene card, 'thinking of You'.

Click the photo above to see a larger and more clear photo!

 Wanted to have it a soft look this time. I used color pencils with Copic markers for the buildings' image, though it may look like a watercolor.
Can you see it normal 'city' scape?, not 'silly'? Or, yet silly? *giggle*
 Other colorings were... I used Ranger Distress inks for the tree, and HA Shadow Ink Pool for the sky to use a blending foam. And added the clear and color buttons with hemp cord. Saw many pretty embelishments to use buttons on HA blog last week,so I wanted to take several buttons into my card.
*The blue CS was punched out at the bottom and was just only folded. Because I wanted to add one more motion onto this card as same as the buttons drawing the wave line.
(I was going to post the partial closeup, but I quit it since the photo wasn't good and didn't have time to take its pic again. Sorry!)

Hero Arts: Silly Scape / K5425, Design Blocks Tree / S5037, Poly Clear Say Hello / CL378 (a tiny bird), Sparkle Clear Simple Messages / CL173
Other supplies:
Bazzill Kraft CS, Kuretake CS

  3. Hi, Dawn and Virginia!
    Thanks always for your generous comments! I go out from now on, I'm gonna visit your blogs later.

    Virginia, are there many HA stamps in the shops around your region? Go and buy it, please! I'm not to blame. ;)

  5. This is wonderful, Tomo - love the soft colors! And your addition of the birds and the branch make is just so charming - love the buttons, too!

  6. Hey Tomo, just saw your cards (silly scape) being featured in Hero Arts Twitter! Congrats!! As for the shops near my place? No, they have no new HA stamps and very little selection. I just made a trip to Michigan to buy HA stamps. I think I didn't buy enough ;)May have to order on line...

  7. Love this, Tomo! Reminds me of being in Tokyo at the Park Hotel! The soft colors are so pretty! Congrats on the HA Tweet!

  8. Hi, Alice and Lin! Thanks always for your generous comments! :)

    Virginia, thanks so much! Oh, you came here twice a day? You're too kind!!
    I didn't notice it at all..., because the typhoon comes to close now and it will reach at the closest point from our city after 6-7 hrs.

    > May have to order on line...
    Haha. I recommend you to order through the web. If you bought it (or plus alpha), I would say that the HA was to blame. ;) & *giggle*

  9. Thanks so much Hero Arts for featuring my cards on the HA Twitter! :)

  10. Oh, sorry, Donna! I didn't notice your so much appreciate comment until now! (I don't know how your's were appeared here!?!?)

    This sure is resembled to a city scape of our capital, Tokyo. Have to add Mt. Fuji at the right side in the middle. Please do it, Donna! ;)
