This card took forever to take shape. I started it late on a Friday night, working with a certain sketch challenge and I just couldn't get things to fit right. My initial coloring was not matching the papers properly and it was bugging me. I had also pulled out some old Basic Grey papers, with one sheet from their Wander collection that had skyscrapers and that I always thought would work great with a superhero theme. After a while, I just gave up and went to bed, deciding I'd sleep on it.
It was obviously the right thing to go because when I went back to it the next day, I immediately thought instead of using the skyscraper paper as my background, I could handcut it to create a skyscape instead and pair it with the other paper option I had tried out of desperation the previous night. I also went back to my coloring to darken it up a bit and get a better match to my papers. All was good again.
The sentiment reads, "You never cease to amaze us."
