Pilin' on the Digi Paper

This week at Pile It On! we're challenging you to use Digi Paper and/or a Pre-colored Digi Stamp. We're sponsored by StitchyBear's Digi Outlet, so I used Coosty Creations' Zebra digi stamp & paper pack to create this funky card:

Okay, I have to admit something here: Even though I'm one of the sponsor coordinators at Pile It On! and actually chose this theme, I managed to completely run out of color printer ink & couldn't fit the purchase in before this card was due, so I chose to work with this black-and-white digi paper set.

Working from the black-and-white palette, I incorporated neon ribbon, buttons, and patterned papers as well as a neon-orange embossed version of the Zebra digi stamp. I printed the digi onto a shiny white paper, heat-embossed it, and added detail is a black gel pen.

I haven't done paper-weaving in quite some time, but I was inspired to try this technique again from a beautiful card fellow crafter Ike recently sent me.

I used a neon orange gel pen to add some hand-drawn detail to the inside message section.
