Well I'm celebrating this Friday-eve with one super bright neon card for the new CASE Study this week. In fact, my picture doesn't do this ink justice; you need your sunglasses when handling this card for real! LOL!
So what inspired this bright little card? Well take a peek at JJ's card to find out:
Check out the original post of this card here.
It was those trendy chevrons that got me this week, as well as those rounded corners. I was originally going to cut and play with card for my chevrons, but I thought that it had been a while since I inked up my Hero Arts stamps. It seemed a shame not to use this chevron strip along with Hero Arts neon inks for my interpretation of JJ's amazing card.
I'm also going to enter this card into the April challenge on the Hero Arts blog. I certainly think this card would suit a gal more than a guy with that neon pink! *wink*
- Afraid of lining up a stamp to create a background? Then simply trim each strip and adhere them together to a piece of cardstock.
- When stamping with neon inks, be sure to stamp with the lightest colour first if you can. These inks like to stick to my stamps and after stamping with neon pink it took ages for me to get my neon yellow to not resemble neon orange!
- Think about how the sentiment of your card can match your colour scheme. I purposely chose neon inks to tie in with the positive motto of the sentiment.
