And a warm welcome to you on this lovely Wednesday. It is time for another Challenge over at the Stampotique Designers' Challenge blog. This week's hostess is the lovely Astrid and this is what she said:
"At first I was a bit afraid if these intense colors, but after using them I really love them. They give your work such a nice 'pop'. I challenge you to use at least one Neon color. Can't wait to see your eye popping work :-)"
And a challenge it was as I don't really like Neon colours. So after searching high and low for something neon I found some tape for a Dymo Labeller in Neon colours. So I made a postcard. I am not convinced, sorry Astrid.....
I started out with a postcard and painted it white. I then used a background stamp over the whole thing and used the same ink pad to ink the edges of the card. I then stamped Friend with Versafine ink and clear embossed him. Next I chose a heart die and cut three bits of paper that were big enough to be die cut with this heart. I then glued the tape on the bits of paper and when the glue had dried, (yes, I used glue as the stuff didn't want to stick on it's own) I die cut three hearts.
Next I arranged the hearts on the card and adhered them. With a Big Brush Marker I shaded around the hearts and then also took a fine tipped pen and drew around the hearts and also around the card. I then stamped the sentiment and it still didn't look balanced. So I took the barcode stamps and randomly stamped it around the edge.
I used the following stamps :
