Moxie Fab Keen on Neon Challenge


I'm popping in real quick to share a card i made this weekend this weekend for Moxie Fab's Keen on Neon Challenge. Today is the last day, so if you want to play along you better get crackin!! :)

The challenge is to use Neon, and looking through my stash, the only think that could be considered neon is some orange embossing powder that i got, but never used. And since its still the holiday the season, i wanted to make a Christmas card. It also looks a lot more orange in person, its cloudy today, so had to do inside pictures!

I found at Micheal's this oh so cute birdy stamp by Hampton Art. First i stamped the birds on my cardstock. Then i stamped and embossed the background. Before i melted the powder, i used a toothpick to carefully brush of the powder from the birds legs, i wanted the background to be the background to the birds!

Next i stamped the birds again on Kraft paper, cut them out and added them to my cardbase with pop up dots. I added some black pearls for the birds eyes and a little glitter glue to the birds hats! Last i added a little Kraft ink to the edges of the cardbase.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! The semester is over today (and finals, YAY!!), so i'll be spending a lot of time in the craft room the next couple weeks, so stay tuned for new cards and projects!!!
