Linda's countdown - 4

Linda's trip to Ranger U is getting very close!!  I think I'm almost as excited as she is (no, that's not possible, you're right!)

Anyhow, here is today's tag - using Tim's city skyline and a Stampendous sun. Hope the sun shines on your trip, Linda!!

Tag is coloured with tumbled glass DI and the buildings are embossed with mustard seed embossing powder - you may not believe it, but this is the very FIRST time I have used distress embossing powder!!!!! And its the only one I've got (so far...... guess what's going on my Newbury shopping list!) I thought being yellow, it might give the buildings a sort of sun-kissed look! (I planned this tag last night)
I used mustard seed (and a splash of wild honey) DI's as a paint to colour the sun. The 4 is painted with Claudine Helmuth paints.

Love it! The skyline with the sun was a spectacular idea! The distress EP adds a nice little grungy touch! I wonder if Linda will tack a camera to her forehead whilst at Ranger U for us? lol
