City Skyline on a tag

Tim always makes it look so easy, and the Grungy Monday challenge on Linda's blog this week is no exception.   I tried at least 4 different backgrounds, following Tim's video of Day 7 of Twelve Tags of Christmas in 2007, trying to get a tag color that I liked.    The city skyline is from his ROCKSTAR stamp set. (Broken China with Brushed Corduroy and some Walnut...I think my blending foam had another color on it, resulting in the green cast of the tag.)

I love your tag, especially since we just went to NYC this past Spring with our teenage daughter who would absolutely LOVE your tag too. I've never seen this skyline stamp, so it's new to me. I love the color of your tag background. Trying to guess what it is...?

I love the way you have stamped the skyline Evelyn, it is muted and leaves a little to the imagination which is what I love about it, your design with the added metal elements craetes so much interest.
