More Neon Play

I started this card last night, but as sometimes happens, I had to walk away and let things digest. This morning it came to me, and I finished it, quite differently than it started out. :)  Here it is, then I'll explain:

It all started with this, one of my first double chevron attempts:

Ugh, still playing with lighting and camera settings, sorry.
This one actually lined up so well, I used my gelly pen to put dots in the junctions. But I set it aside and it languished until I got the idea to stick it to a piece of SU Melon Mambo card stock. That's where I left it last night.

This morning I decided it was too much Melon Mambo, so I cut it down to just an edge, and left most of the card white. I thought the "dazzling" sentiment was a good fit, and I busted out my neon Copics to color the gems. Note: They leave a flat finish on the gems, not shiny. I remember this now since I've used them before.

Today, in between loads of laundry, I think I'll do a few challenges. I'll be back if I actually finish anything share-worthy.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. More enabling with the chevrons! I love this card - you're a genius.

  2. Love this. As a fan of vintage sewing stuff, it makes me thing of rick rack / ric rac trim, which is some of my favorite stuff.


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