The Paper Girls Challenge #22: Neon

 The latest challenge at the Paper Girls Challenge is to use Neon colors on your project. There's a bonus for using neon colors in a non traditional way with Holiday or winter themed projects. I decided to go ahead and make a Christmas card for my sample.

I decided to use the emboss resist technique combined with my Dylusions spray ink to make my card. First I embossed all of my images with clear embossing powder on white card stock. Then I spritzed the pieces with the different Dylusions colors. The background is Bubble gum Pink, the tree is  Fresh Lime, and the sentiment is Vibrant Turquoise. I spritzed each piece with water after the dye ink to make sure the color ran and i got even coverage. Ther will be a little bit of running under the embossing but I like the variations in color. As you can see in the close up I added some SU Dazzling Details around the Labels die shapes. I wanted to frame them a little more in a subtle way.

Thanks for checking out my projects. Be sure to look at all of the other Paper Girls projects with their super fun ideas with Neon. If you want to join in on the fun we have given everyone an extra week to participate because of the Holidays. So link up your project to the Paper Girls Challenge blog post by Saturday January 5th.
