Neon Blooms

Neon blooms Heather Telford

I played with a couple of new products when creating this card for the current challenge from CAS(E) this Sketch. Imagine Crafts Tsukineko recently brought out a new line of inks called Radiant Neons. I used the Electric Yellow, Orange, Pink and Green for the flowers and stems. The ink pads are incredibly juicy so I barely needed to touch the pad with the ink blusher to pick up enough ink to sponge through the stencil.

The other new products featured on this card are stencils from Penny Black. I used the promenade and the flower dance stencils from the new Happy Everything release. I can see so many possible ways to use these stencils so expect to see more of them in the next little while. I could have added the black outlines with the co-ordinating large stamps but I have been wanting to do the ‘scribbly black line technique‘ on a card so I kept the stencils in place to draw in some black outlines with a Pitt artist pen. After I removed the stencil I added a few more scribbly lines here and there. I used a post-it to mask between the words of the sentiment so I could scribble in my own ampersand and then added a couple of scribbles either side.

Can I just add that it takes a little longer to post a card while watching the Oscars!
