Craft Stamper Take It, Make It Challenge - June

I'm not sure if this is the inlaid die cutting technique or not but I've seen someting similar on the Internet when using dies with intricate patterns. Instead of removing all of the small pieces you leave them in the paper and then you color chosen parts.
I'm really bad at die cutting and I haven't got the patience to remove all of the itty bitty pieces so I thought this was the technique for me, but no! This was also difficult. I ended up with half of the panel really nice cut and half like I wanted it to be. I decided to have a go anyway and just see where it would end.
I started coloring my die cut panel with watered down Distress Inks before I glued the panel onto a cardbase. I wanted my card to shimmer a bit so I used an apricot mist. It was the wrong color, so I tried to wipe it off straight away and then I misted the card again with a more neutral color.
I really like white embossing on black, I see it everywhere now. I like the contrast it gave to the otherwise soft look. And finally, some sequins! I love sequins!
I'm using a few inks on this card so I'm joining the Craft Stamper June Take It, Make It Challenge where the theme for this month is: Let's Get Inky.
