TMR - Colours - Neon ....

....  Hello!!  It's an absolutely beautiful morning here in Northville - and I've been playing in my craft room!  Our challenge over at The Male Room - TMR#19-15 this week is to use NEON colours on your masculine projects.  I know that many people find it quite tough to create masculine cards, but I really like making them.  So I thought I'd share a card I made this morning - it is quite bold and bright:

Stamps: Serendipity Stamps - Stars; Stampin' Up! - Sassy Salutations
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Neon Handmade Paper; Vellum; Copic Markers; Clear Embossing Powder


I used my Serendipity stars to create the background and as that's the challenge this month at Serendipity Stamps Challenge - SSCB#47 I'm playing along with them.  This set of stamps has four different images and I think the ribbons work for a masculine styled card.  I stamped the image in Memento and coloured the ribbons with Copic markers.  I edged the finished panel with a black marker to give some definition.  I stamped the sentiment on vellum, heat embossed with clear powder and wrapped it round the stamped panel, before layering it on some neon handmade paper (I've had this in my stash for ages) and attached the whole panel to the card with dimensional tape.  I kept the inside really simple with a narrow vertical panel of the neon handmade paper and white card.

Whatever your plans are for the rest of the day - have a good one!  Bye for now.

Love your card Deborah! I really like the way you colored the stars - it really shows off the design. This one has always been a favorite of mine - reminds me of a pretty little woven Christmas Ornament that my mom picked up years ago and that I now have! Thanks for joining us in the Serendipity Stamps Background Challenge!
