Wising you all a Happy New Year 2015 from everyone at Imagine Crafts!!

Here is how I got inspired to create this card… I have always loved softer colors and never thought I could love Neons, ever. When Imagine Crafts introduced the new Radiant Neon inks last year, I was a little bit scared to try them but I did give them a go. Little did I know that I will fall in love with this line of ink! LOL So for my New Year’s card, I used my favorite Radiant Neon inks along with the subtle shimmer of the Shimmer Spritz Sparkle and the recently introduced Radian Neon irRESISTible Pico Embellisher 🙂

Supplies:

  • Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko:  Radiant Neon Ink in electric Pink, Electric Orange, Electric Yellow, Electric Purple; irRESISTible Pico Embillesher Neon: Electric Pink, Electric Purple, Electric Yellow, Electric Orange; Delicata Golden Glitz, Sheer Shimmer Spritz Sparkle and Frost, Ink Potion No.9, Craft Mat
  • Paper Smooches: Digits, Spiffy Scooters stamps; Digits die cut
  • Lil’ Inker Designs: Stitched Rectangle Mat die
  • Miscellaneous:  vellum, watercolor paper, adhesive, 3D foam, powder tool, heat gun
