Neon flowers

<Edited to add> I first colored with the Neon Twisters over the white card stock, I then stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black over the colors. I kept the stamp on the side of the paper to sort of get the height of the colors the same. But I found that with these transparent colors I could go over the ink without making much difference.  The red liquid pearls were added last and left lying down to dry. <End of edit>

I used Bostik Neon Twisters for the background. They are more like crayons than markers and love the way they smooth on.

The hearts were covered with red Adironrack liquid pearls.
