SDC 187 Neon

Stampotique Designers Blog challenge for this week is to use neon. This is what the host Astrid Stulemeijer has us say:
At first I was a bit afraid of these intense colours, but after using them, I really love them.  They give your work such a nice "pop".  I challenge you to use at least one neon colour.  Can't wait to see your eye popping work!

A challenge indeed as i wasn’t sure if i owned any neon colours and i don’t find them easy to work with.

Off the check on my stash and found a piece of background card i had over from the taster day i went to at AFTH in February which is very bright, cut out an ATC sized card from it.

Decided to use Teddy from Stampotique as my muse. Found some very old neon pens in my stash, coloured Teddy in but didn’t fussy cut him out just the basic shape, i stamped him again directly onto the ATC and then adhered the coloured in version over the top.

Sat looking at him for a while then hand wrote the words ‘They told me to trust their design choices. Never ever again…’ Added a bow and a butterfly handbag.

Drew some little white circles on the edge then outlined them using a UniBall Pen, found an old stamp which i partially stamped just for the word Art. Stamped using Vintage Photo Distress ink then outlined the letters with a white Signo Pen. Put that onto a piece of torn kraft paper and then added a piece of book paper. Grounded Teddy with some washi tape from stash.

Macro shot of Teddy so you can see the bow and butterfly.

Hope you have enjoyed your visit today, thanks for dropping by and looking forward to your lovely comments.

  26. Not sure how I got so far behind, but I adore Neon Teddy. Well, at least Teddy's neon background. Loved the humor in the design choice, and really liked the butterfly handbag. Very clever, funny, and FUN.
