A Dirty Challenge

Have you seen the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges going on over at Splitcoaststampers this week?! I have seen such beautiful cards and some fun challenges! If you are a member of the Fan Club (and if not, why???) you get to play along with them!! I had a little time this afternoon so I played along with Jenn Balcer's inspiration challenge - the cake she chose as the inspiration piece is simply amazing!!

I've had this Rubber Romance stamp for quite a while without using it and since the inspiration piece is a cake . . well it was time!! :) You may not be able to see it in the photo, but the black paper has embossed lines about 1/4" around the whole piece - then the gems are placed in the 4 corners. I just love the black, white and green (Rose Ann's card here was the first I saw yesterday and I LOVE it!!). I colored the image with Copic markers using big streaky strokes without much blending to enhance the sketchy look of the stamp. I also didn't want too much color so I mostly used the Cool Shadow marker.

I hope to get a chance to play along with some other challenges soon!! Have a great day!

Cardstock: GP White, Basic Black, dp is Chatterbox, Stamps: Rubber Romance, sentiment from Piece of Cake (Papertrey Ink), Inks: Noir, Chartreuse (Palette), Accessories: Ribbon (American Crafts), Dimensionals, Square gems, Copic Markers
