Grow Your Dreams

Well it's Wednesday again, and that can only mean one thing, time for another challenge at Stampotique, and this time the lovely Astrid has chosen Neon. Here's what she has to say...
At first I was a bit afraid of these intense colors, 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 color. Can't wait to see your eye popping work :-)
Eek this was a bit scary for me too Astrid lol. For my neons I used highlighter pens and Kate's amazing new stamp. The background has been painted with watercolours, then gold paint has been sponged through a stencil.

Kate's Angel has been stamped and coloured with highlighters, this is a fab stamp to colour and cut out, not too fussy.
Grow Your Dreams has been stamped and embossed - it's almost straight lol, I'll settle for that.
This was great to make, so thanks for your scary challenge Astrid. 
I'm also entering this into the 
Wings n Things challenge at Thats Crafty.
I hope you get chance to join in with the challenge, and thanks very much for looking xx

  4. WOW Sue, this is fantastic, loving the sewing and how you have used it to ground Kate's angel. Scared of neons too so not sure what to make for this weeks challenge, thanks for the inspiration :-) xxx

  5. I thought is was scary too Sue. I actually don't own any paints of inks in neon so I had to improvise... Yours is beautiful !
