Neon Sunflower



So excited to be hopping today with the Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko design team!


If you are hopping with us, you should have arrived here from Penny Ward's blog.  If you want to start at the beginning go to Cardmaker Blog.

Imagine Crafts sent the Cardmaker Blog team a bunch of  Radiant Neon ink pads and I loved playing with them!

For today's project I paired Radiant Neon Electric Yellow and Green ink with Hot Lime and Hot Yellow Fragments.


I applied the yellow ink directly to a panel of white cardstock to make it electric yellow.


Then I lay the stencil from the Wired Stamp set by Stampendous on the panel and sponged green ink  over the stencil.


This is how it looked when I lifted the stencil.


I tied some May Arts ribbons around the panel.


I created a 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" top folding white card and sponged the electric green ink around the edges of the front of the card.


Then I adhered the main panel to the card front.


I even had fun with the inside of the card!



I stamped the Sweet Sunflower image on a white panel with black ink and colored with copic markers (YG00-YG01-YG03-Y15-Y06-Y00-YR24)


I sponge green ink around the edges of the image panel and then adhered it to the card.  The final touch was to adhere the fragments to the card.
