So, for the last year or two, neon has been HUGE. I’ll make a confession…. I hate neon. Like, I hate it. If you’ve seen my work for any amount of time at all, you’ll know I truck primarily in pastels and jewel tones (usually not together). So when the early 90’s started making a return into the fashion (and thus, the cardmaking) world, I was less than thrilled. BUT this project may have changed that bad ‘tude I once maintained. This card definitely did not come out as I originally intended, but I’m kind of okay with that.
To start, I heat embossed a bunch of images from the Avery Elle Floral Frame stamp set using Satin Pearl embossing powder on watercolor paper, then running them through my Big Shot (my Vagabond died, but a new one is on its way to me… yay!) with the coordinating dies. When my mojo is lying low, and I can’t come up with a real “project,” this is one of my go-to solutions: stamp/heat emboss a bunch of images and pull out the Zigs. I chose this color scheme based on a party invitation we received for our friends’ daughter’s birthday party, but it came out so much brighter and more neon-ish than I initially intended. (That invite has given me quite a bit of inspiration!)
Anyway, that’s all for me today! I hope you enjoyed my foray into the world of neon!
