Hello My Neon Friend!

Well -it is pretty dang difficult to use neon colours with a semi-elegant creation - wowzers! The Curtain Call Challenge should actually think of that when offering up their challenges right??! haha

Well guess what? - that is why it is a challenge - so let's move forward.

My sketch is from this week's The Challenge - a weekly challenge that offers up a different theme each week - this week is the sketch week.

I chose to stamp up my Reverse Confetti Rose Garden stamp set, stamping in Raspberry Fizz ink and watercoloring the leaves.  They were die cut with the matching Confetti Cuts.

The green panel was water coloured with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi water-colour paints and then die cut with a Nestabilities rectangle die.

I layered the roses onto the water coloured panel and stamped my sentiment from Reverse Confetti's "A Friend Like You" in Versafine Onyx Black ink.

I adhered the panel onto a piece of trimmed down Papertrey Ink Black and White All Over patterned paper and then mounted it onto my Spring Moss card base.

…..and a detailed shot of those gorgeous roses!
