For today's neon card, I wanted my neon colors to really POP against a dark background...
I began by inking white cardstock with Electric Green ink using an ink blusher.  Once dry, I stamped Penny Black, 40-283 Floral Tapestry, using StazOn Midnight Blue ink.  I love the way these two inks mixed on the solid areas, giving the background additional texture.  Next I used Penny Black's Creative Die Pinwheel to cut a "window" on the background.  The butterfly (Penny Black Creative Die 51-010 Delicate Wings) was colored with a combo of Memento Luxe Lilac Posies ink (bottom butterfly layer) and Electric Pink (top butterfly layer).  Some ribbon and twine from May Arts finishes things off along with my die cut sentiment (Penny Black 51-038 Hooray).  I really love the way the Radiant Neon colors look paired with darker Tsukineko inks...I just might have to try that again!
