Miss You.....

I had this idea in my head, when I saw a couple of challenges 
but had to wait until Mr Postie came with the sentiment stamp and he came this morning!
So here's today's card.......
I started by masking off the horizon line and wetting my card with a paintbrush.
I flicked Brusho's onto the wet area and left them to dry.
The Sydney skyline, from clearly besotted has been stamped with Kaleidacolor rainbow dye inks 
and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
I keep forgetting I have a few of these and they have stayed really wet, even after a few years.
The sentiment has been stamped with dark blue archival ink, 
along with the rising bubble stamp from Ryn Design.
I left the rest of the card white, as open space to achieve the look of the vastness of the ocean 
between here and Australia....And the Deep Ocean to represent......Down Under
