Hot Colours at International Art & Soul

Our theme this fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge is Hot Colours.

To create the background, I inked a craft mat with hot pink & orange inks, spritzed it, and smooshed my smooth white paper on it. I like the watercolor effect.

The prickly pear cactus & lizard are die-cuts from my stash. I heat-embossed them in neon green. I heat-embossed the sentiment directly onto the background. The mulberry flowers were colored with Copics.

I recently won a gift certificate from Pink & Main, and couldn't wait to use my new Bubbly Border dies. I used neon embossing powders on the detailed top pieces, and cut the bases from neon papers.
