I never knew how to handle neon colours, and for years I considered them kitschy. Until I noticed the trend, that is - which as any trend may be more or less valid in one's point of view, but always should be considered as a powerful tool. Or, the mustache trend. Doesn't necessarily turn me on much either, but I say if people can get a tad silly because the trend allows them to do so, I say why not :)
I'm getting a tad silly here too, with this extremely neon-y Christmas card. I gave the two gorgeous stamps from Hero Arts their first inking, which is condemnable since I won them in a HA Contest a good few months ago :P
I'm entering this card into their November Contest as well (Bring on the Bling, Embossing), hope that fact will bring me some luck *wink*
Okay, so I own close to nothing in terms of crafts, that is of neon colour. I made my way around it by using PTI Raspberry Fizz for my card. If any of their colours that may be considered as such, that's surely the one!
I embossed the gorgeous Dotted Snowflake with Teal You What EP from Gel-A-Tins, and topped it up with 2012 Snowflake Pendant Shapeabilities® & MME glazed brad. The shape was die cut from Core'Dinations glitter cardstock, the one truly neon piece on this card :)
The sentiment comes from the Miracle Of The Holiday set.
I hope you like it :)
