Favorite adhesive
Embossing powder of your choice
Cardstock white and black of your choice
Color pencil #380 from Pentel
Memento tuxedo black

Sponge of your choice


here is the stamp set I used for the card

1. Here the second generation technique ,i start by stamping the image over the  cardstock without re-inking the same stamp I  stamped over the cardstock and  that give me that second image more lighter and that is  why is call the 2nd generation stamp it will added t o your card a dimension effect

2.Them  I added some color  sponge  the  top part of the card with  radiant neon color I used the blue color so i have a blue sky  background

3.The I did  the same   for the  bottom part to  give a illusion of green grass

4. Here I want to  give  a little color to the tress so  I colored the tree truck wit a brown pencil
and added as well some Neon Amplify to added  dimension  this  very  easy to used  just apply the amount you want in the area and apply  heat (using the heat gun ) and the will  active the ink to pop just  like is you  was embossing you can see effect  in the next picture as well

5.I used the same   here for the tress  give the look  of  light bulbs  on the tree when you applied the Neon Amplify  pigment ink

here  another view

6. this the in side of the card I use the tear-it adhesive  and added some glitter over

And for my  sentimental  I used the Kaleidacolor so  you can see the rainbow look.

Thank you for this amazing tutorial  Alicia.
