Neon Graffiti Love You Card by Tonya Gibbs

Well hello again, my crafty friends.  Are you ready to get INKY?   I just got the new Lindy's Stamp Gang Limor Webber Designs Neon Graffiti in the mail last weekend. Let me tell you - IT IS SO VIBRANT and fun!  I don't think I'll ever get the pink and purple out of my nails (LOL)!
I had a few nieces turn 10 this week. I thought this would be a great opportunity to play around with these fabulous new colors and create something with an edgy pop culture feel!
These fantastic colors come in Flat Fabio (No shimmer) Sprays, Color Shots, Magicals and Embossing Powders.  In this set you will get your poppy/edgy warm colors with a true white and true black!   HOW EXCITIG.   When I say vibrant I MEAN IT! Intense pigment colors here - that's for sure!  

Of course my mind went immediately to Limor's Splattered Heart stamp from IndigoBlu.  It makes the perfect Graffiti graphic for my card design.   I used a Versa ink pad to stamp the image onto my watercolor paper, then used Lindy's Midnight Pewter embossing powder to create a resist.  I used this embossing powder instead of the one in the set, because I wanted it to have a little shimmer.   The one in the set is Flat. 
In the video I  also shared my hand drawn Graffiti type.  If you are unsure about drawing these, you could always  cut block letters from a die cutting machine and layer them. I created this card as an A2 top folding card.  Here are the measurements for each panel.
watercolor paper - Cut to  3 3/4 inches x 5 inches (this is the panel with the art)
hot pink cardstock frame  - Cut to 4 inches x 5 1/4 inches
black cardstock -   4 1/4 inch x 11 inches  scored at 5 1/2 inches
This card is so FUN!  Next week I will share with you a project using the Magicals from this collection.
Thanks for stopping in today,
