Around the World Challenge: Vancouver

I'm a couple days late with this one.. mostly because I was unsure if I wanted to post it. Not my best freehand work and to be honest I rushed it a little because I forgot all about the challenge until Saturday evening.

This week we are "travelling" to Vancouver for the Around the World Challenge, the only city on the entire list I've actually been to. (Although by the end of the summer I plan to add one more to the list - can you guess which one?)

It was difficult to settle on an idea for this so I resorted to googling "vancouver clip art" and came across a cute silhouette of the vancouver sky-line:

I started with a gradient using Finger Paints Paper Mache, Barry M Blueberry Icecream & Cyan Blue. Then I painted the skyline using a nail art brush and China Glaze First Mate. Once again I didn't add a top coat to this one because I was in a bit of a hurry and was afraid to smudge it all. Next week's challenge is written on my calendar so I will have more time to prepare and create a better executed design   :)

Don't forget to head over to Guilty As Charged and check out the other entries!! :)
