My mojo has been running on empty the past few days, but when I saw the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge was to use neon colors to create your holiday card, I got inspired.
I followed the current sketch from Clean & Simple challenges:
and no, I didn't use washi tape. Well, I did, but not in the way you'd think.
Here's the first card I made:
I CASEd the snowflake idea from Jennifer McGuire's post. I'd wanted to try it, and once I combined that idea with the angles of the sketch, and threw in neon, it all came together pretty quickly. I used Hero Arts neon inks for the snowflakes, and Tsukineko Radiant Neon Electric Blue for the sentiment so I could clear emboss it.
Then there was a glimmer of light and I thought maybe if I used a pink washi tape as the border, I could enter this into the current Jingle Belles PINK Christmas challenge:
Oh, here's proof that the sentiment is actually embossed:
I may or may not go back and add something to the centers of the snowflakes. The jury is still out on that.
Then I got another idea, which I'll post separately since I'd also like to link it to the sketch challenge.
Thanks for stopping by!
Stuff I used: washi tape, vat of clear embossing powder, and the following:
Another great addition to the *PINK* Jingle Belles challenge, Leslie! :)ReplyDelete

If I had thought to combine these colours in my head, I would have thought I was nuts. AND YET - perfection. Seriously awesome!ReplyDelete
Very cute-- like that font!ReplyDelete
A vat of clear EP! hee hee I was just trying to remember the other day if I even owned any clear EP. I was too lazy to open the drawer and look so now we still don't know. Great card and the washi tape was a brilliant addition. I'm still not seeing the neon and Christmas tho!ReplyDelete
