Inspirational Challenge - Colour Challenge

It's a new challenge started over at Inkspirational today and it's a colour challenge this time.  Use Neon!  Luckily I happened to have some neon inks. :-)

This will be a fun challenge and I hope you will all join us.  I actually have two cards to share with you today.  I made one and then ended up making another from some of the scraps of the first card.  Take a look...

So, the first card I made by die cutting the word happy and using it as a mask.  I sponged pink and blue neon ink (Hero Arts) then stamped some circular patterned stamps (Studio G) in the same colours over top.  Then I splattered some watered down black ink.  I removed the mask and stamped the birthday (STAMPlorations) in black.  I then attached my panel to my card base with some foam dots.  My second card was made using the happy mask.  I loved how it looked after I had sponged and stamped all over it.  So I took a white card base and splattered some watered down neon blue ink.  I then put some bright purple striped washi tape (Scotch Expressions) on the bottom edge.  I adhered my happy die cut and then stamped the birthday in black.  I like how both of them turned out but I think I like the second card the best.

I hope you'll be able to join us Ink girls and make some bright neon cards.  Check out the other DT girls projects as they are fabulous.  So, is the card our guest designer, Michelle, made.  Visit her blog, I Card Everyone and leave her some love.  :-)

I'm going to link up to the following challenges with just the second card:

  9. WOW. love the neon colors!!!! Thanks for sharing this awesome card with us at AAA Cards!!!!!

  10. Wow... what an awesome idea to use the negative image and then make another card with the cut out! And both cards look great! Neon is not my favorite, but you have done a wonderful job here using the colors, but not having them overpower the card. Beautiful masking work, as usual!
