oh hello there

and hello to you too!
i'm here to show off a card i made for the current play date cafe challenge! the colors are black, white and a splash of neon yellow! hello!!! i love it! 

so i pulled out of my newton's nook design stamps and got to it! 

i used the campfire tails and winged wishes stamps sets. 
everything was heat embossed in white onto black cardstock. then i added some neon yellow to make the little bugs 'glow!'. and that bright yellow is actually my inktense watercolor pencils! hello virbant on black!! i used only a little bit of water and lots of lots of 'color' straight from the tip of the pencil.

then i added some glossy accents to the bugs' wings and popped up the black cardstock to make it stand out a little from the neon yellow and white background.

and that's it! it's a pretty clean and simple card, but fun! :)
hope you're enjoying your weekend! i'm going to get scrappy again with danielle!
