Neon, Hexagons and Chevrons. They said to use at least one of them, but being the over-achiever that I can be at times, I decided to use all three of them on the same card. The brain churned most of the day, and no, I didn't look at anyone else's.
As I started the actual attempt to get my ideas onto paper, I may or may not have muttered "it seemed like a good idea at the time", and more than once. I made two different cards, and actually executed my original idea, at least in part.
Here's one of them:
The hexagons looked lonely here, so I took a piece of left-over neon orange card stock I'd colored for another project and die-cut some hearts for the centers. Then the sentiment looked lonely, so I used the rest of the die-cut piece behind it. I originally had a piece of neon orange washi tape there, but it fought with the chevrons, so hearts it was.
For my next trick, I made this:
I went wild and added a strip of neon pink washi to the card where the hexagons would go. This time when I cut the hexagons, I actually used the hexagon die that cuts. They stayed in place (didn't fall out) which was wonderful, since all I had to do was apply glue to the backs, line the scrap up on the hot pink washi, then press them into place, perfectly spaced.
The sentiment is from the Dylusions Say What You Mean set, stamped in neon blue. Even the pearls were colored with a neon Copic that I picked up during the same shopping spree where I bought the Dylusions stamps. It was a spendy weekend.
So I guess I've broken out of my "kids cards" mode, huh? :)
Well, both of these are very bright, so maybe I'll work on something less likely to keep me up tonight. :) I've printed off even more challenges I won't get to, so I'd best get started.
Thanks for stopping by!
