Rubbernecker challenge #27 - Cut it out

The challenge over on the Rubbernecker blog is to "Cut it Out." Bev is challenging everyone to pick up their scissors and cut out an image to be placed on the card. For me, that usually means paper piecing, so I looked through my stamps to see what would be easy to cut out. I picked the stained glass daisies.

Isn't that fun? I used three different kinds of designer paper from Basic Grey here. The darker pink/peach color in the center is colored with copic markers. After I finished the card, the black was just too overwhelming, so I looked around for something that would help make it not so stark. I found the Versamark Dazzle pads that I bought last year, and went "why not?" So I smooshed the Champagne Dazzle pad all over the card and now it has a very subtle shimmer to it - really neat!

If you would like to play, just go check out the details on the Rubbernecker blog. Happy Labor Day weekend!

Stamps: stained glass daisies by Rubbernecker, sentiment from Stampin Up
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark Dazzle Champagne
