Foxy Neons with Stampendous and Imagine Crafts

Hello! This is going to be an exciting week in Bloggy Land. The Stampendous team is collaborating with Imagine Crafts! I am stoke about this because now, I am on both of those teams...so I hope that I do both companies justice. Today's project features the fox from the new Woodland Creatures stamp set, the Chevron stencil from Dreamweaver, and Radiant Neon reinkers.


Directions: 
1. Stamp fox with Memento Ink. Use Chameleon Pens in the colors Listed above to color in the image. Use coordinating dies to cut out the fox.  
2. Create a monoprinted background using the reinkers from Imagine Crafts and the Creative Palette. Squirt the 3 colors of reinkers  on to the Creative Palette and roll out with a brayer. Press the inked palette on to Mixed Media Paper. You can make several impressions, or monoprints, by rolling the brayer over the ink each time. More information on this is available here: http://www.stampendous.com/tips-techniques/creative-palette-tips-tricks/ 
3. Tape the Chevron Background stencil to the monoprint, and use a stencil brush to apply the Electric Purple ink to the monoprint. Remove the stencil, and emboss the inked areas with Clear Lavender embossing powder from the Summer Shine kit. Trim the monoprint. 
4. Create the card base from Winter Lake and cut to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold. 
5. Cut the 2" x 1/2" Fitted Frame out of Mixed Media Paper and stamp "Hello Sunshine" sentiment from the Spring Sentiments set. Ink the edges with the Electric Purple ink. 
6. Die cut the Bobbler from the POP'cessories set out of Mixed Media Paper and attach to the fox with Craft Glue Dots. Glue the rest of the card together using the Glue Dots.  

Here you can see the batch of monoprints that I made. I used the second print (on the left) for today's card. 


This shot shows you the shine from the embossing powder on my Chevron design. You can also sort of see the dimension of the head popping away from the body.


Here's a shot of what the coil looks like from the POP'cessories. This new die set helps you create 3D projects so easily!
