You Color My World

I played along with CAS(E) This Sketch #2:

and made this:

It seemed like a good idea at the time, but I found that coloring the bursts with the Neon ink pads wasn't as simple as I'd anticipated. This was my fourth attempt, and I chose to embrace the color oopses and pretend I meant to do that. I did go back over the multi-colored stems with a green Memento marker to make them sorta uniform, but not. Sigh.

I decided the flowers needed black centers, and I colored some white pearls with a black Sharpie. I love that you can make any color pearls you want with Sharpies or Copics. I also decided the letters needed to be colored in, and I used my Neon Copics to do that.

Once again I think I've managed to get a squillion products on one CAS card. How does that happen? Well, at least I'm using my stuff, right? :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Products used but not linked below: black Sharpie, misc white pearls, misc white card stock. Also, I've linked to a collection of memento markers, but I bought mine singly.


  1. Wow! Love the vibrant colours and the splashes, this is a fabulous CAS card

  2. Love those neon colors! FUN card Leslie. So glad you played along in this week's CAS(E) this Sketch!

  3. Wow, those inks really are neon! The bursts look great; embrace the oopses.

  4. My rotten kids are always stealing my Sharpie - the black one, the others are hidden safely away - and I NEED IT all the time. Love the letters coloured in, and the I MEANT TO DO THAT multi-inked flowers. They look super funky in neon!

  5. What a wonderful use of this stamp! It's wonderful in neon and I love how you have added the colors to the sentiment. So glad to see you at CAS(E) this Sketch!

  6. Is that (gah!) neon pink I see there? I like it, I think your color oopses worked out fine.

  7. I think your color bursts looks awesome! Love how you added the black centers :) Thanks for playing this week at CAS(E) this Sketch!


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
