I stamped the cityscape from Calling all Heroes across the page with Basic Gray ink. I turned the photopolymer stamp around backwards on the block and stamped the shadow/reflection below the city I had just created. Took a Project Life Journaling Pen and darkened the waterline by doodling down the waterline. Dried with heat tool. Added some yellow to the windows. Stamped the moon in the sky and the reflection in the water. Threw on some clear embossing powder to protect any of the ink that hadn't dried yet. Used Island Indiogo ink pad direct to paper to create the night sky and water reflection of the night sky. Touched up any areas that needed it with sponging. Covered the whole thing with clear embossing powder and heat set it. Everything wasn't still wet enough to hold the EP, but I like the effect it gives.
Finished it off by using a black StazOn pad direct to paper around the edges and a little more in the bottom corners to give it that mysterious shadow.
It's not perfect--there is some moonlight reflection in the water that I didn't intend to be there, but I liked it anyway.

WOWWWWWWWWWWWW this is incredible!!! I love how many steps you took, and I was going to comment on the moonlight being one of my fave elements, so it's funny that it was accidental! The texture from your EP adds so much. What an amazing creation.
