Winter Trees - Make it Neon!

Be sure to enter the Die Cut Divas' challenge - October is Autumn and Animals.

Neon Holidays can be fun too.

I love the neon purple on this Christmas stamp, Winter Trees.  When I saw this in the Hero Arts catalog last year, I knew I had to get it.  I also used a die cut I've never used with this type of stamp before.  It makes for an unusual style.  I added mini sized round gems and lots of dabs of Star Dust Stickles onto the snowflakes falling among the bare branches of the trees.   I'm entering this in the Hero Arts challenge in the category:
  • Merry and Bright – Brighten up your holidays with NEON! Use any Hero Arts neon ink or neon dauber on your project.

This LOOKS BLUE - THIS IS NOT NOT NOT BLUE,  THIS IS PUTPLE .  Oh well, it is lovely.

The background is Patterned Paper.  I thought it was perfect for the card.

I hope you like this.  It's a little bit different, but I like it.

Arlene--this jumped right out at me from the contest pool! A lovely idea to use the blue and the shaping of the design is unique! Well done!
