Almost neon? When I showed this card to my husband that was his comment. I suddenly had a flashback to the many pieces of neon clothing I wore in the 70s. Scary!
The look I was going for with this card was fun and friendly. I used the new Tangerine Tango, Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi embossing powders from the Summer Mini Catalogue with Whisper White Craft ink. I am finding that using the Whisper White Craft ink produces a slightly brighter image than using VersaMark ink for the embossing.
I heat embossed the Flower Fest stamp set images onto Night of Navy cardstock and then punched or cut them out to assemble the flowers. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals between the layers to make them stand out a bit more.
The card itself is layers of Whisper White and Night of Navy cardstocks with a Night of Navy patterned paper from the Regals Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack.
So, was I successful? Is this card fun and friendly? Please leave me a comment and let me know if you like the look of the bright embossing powders on dark colored cardstock. Thanks!
