What a lucky kitty he is...
He travels all around the world, and this month, he is in NYC!
I love visiting Manhattan :-)
Okay, here is my take...;-)

Newton's Nook Designs Newton Dreams of NY Set - Naki Rager

I was born and raised right outside of Tokyo, so tall buildings and busy asphalt streets are all I knew growing up. When I was a teenager, my friends and I would spend all night in Tokyo til the time for the last train of the day to get home. So naturally, big city reminds me of night outing;-)

I just couldn't resist coloring the lady Liberty kitty!!!
How cute is she!?
She was heat embossed with antique photo emboss powder (it looks copper) then colored with Spectrum Noir Marker. I used 2 shades of gray and dark green to make it look like the real statue.

These building are amazing!!!
I heat embossed them with silver, colored them with my silver colored pencil (it is surprisingly shimmery!), and the windows with the gold glitter pen. I die cut 2 extra buildings from the same black patterned paper to give some shadow behind them.

Pretend you're standing on Liberty Island visiting the lady, and look over the sea to view the city at night. The ocean is sparkling from the reflection of the street lights, you might see a few stars in the sky, the buildings are lit up... love it!
