Glittery Hugs


Lately I have been playing with my neon ink daubers.  I  tap them on the craft sheet and spritz with Perfect Pearl solution then lay a piece of card stock to soak up the diluted ink.  The results are never the same, and I like the shimmer I get from the Perfect Pearl.

For this card I used use Neon Orange and Neon Pink.  I love how soft it came out and there are areas that's not inked and I get a speckled look.

Wow! Doesn't feel like neon inks are used at all! It looks really awesome!! I think I am going to use this technique too please, never tried it fearing that the ink might not spread enough.. But once again, awesome card! :)

The result is gorgeous Cindy. a technique I often use and am always amazed at the different results. Something about the speckled effect speaks to me every time i try it.

That sounds like a fun technique and the outcome looks nothing like "neon". Fabulous and so perfect for the A A Bit of Sparkle challenge at A Blog Named Hero. Great to have you participate.
