When I saw this set for the first time, I thought of fireworks over skylines and how they reflect in the water. I tried to do some watercoloring and heat embossing... and I think this is fine for a first-timer. I will keep trying until I get it to look more like those skyline photos! Lol.
I used some distress inks to watercolor the sky, water, and buildings. I waited for it to completely dry before I stamped the firework combinations in VersaMark and heat embossed in various colors. The reflection parts were a little messy and handdrawn with a VersaMarker and heat embossed with matching colors. I wonder if I should have used lighter colors? The sentiment was stamped on white cardstock and heat embossed with black embossing powder. I added a flag banner cut and added it to the piece with foam tape. The whole piece was then taped onto black cardstock and then white cardstock outlines.
