Rubbernecker Preview Day #2 - All Great Things

Welcome to Rubbernecker Preview Day #2 -  thank you so much for all your lovely comments on yesterday's preview -  didn't you love all of the DT's samples of all the fun stamps being released?!

Today I'm previewing a beautiful silhouette stamp called Wild Garden Corner #559
The sentiment is from the set I previewed yesterday - Tree Set #559 don't you love the mix of fonts on this?  I guess I'm stuck in the CAS mode!  At least today there are 3 layers!  You can click on the pic to see it larger.

To make this card - I first stamped the Garden in black ink on a white panel.  I cut a circle out of a piece of Eclipse tape and placed it where I wanted the moon to be.  Then I sponged over the card with Bundled Sage, Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmelade and Weathered Wood Ranger Distress Inks.  I removed the round piece of Eclipse tape and sponged over the moon with Antique Linen and a little Weathered Wood.   I layered the panel to a black panel, an orange panel and then to the white card base. 

You can find the complete list of today's participants on the Rubbernecker Blog.
