Color My World Neon!

I've had my new Hero Arts neon inks for a little while now and I wanted to share some ideas for them.  If anyone has an idea about how to present the neon colors on the computer, please share those with me, because these scans definitely do not look neon!  But the cards do (in reality, rather than virtuality).  The first card, above, is a copy of one that Lisa Spangler presented on her blog Sideoats and Scribbles.  You can see her original post here:
I used a stamp from Penny Black instead for the sentiment.  

Below is another take-off on one of Lisa's ideas.  You can see her original card here:
I didn't have a lot of embossed paper, so I made my own with heat embossing and white ink and powder for the pink and orange strips below.   Also, the moon is heat embossed in white and then covered with yellow neon ink.  The die shape is from Spellbinder's.  All stamps from Hero Arts.  

This last card features a Hero Arts witch from an older clear set.  I stamped her in black and then colored her with neon inks with my Fantastix blending sticks.  Also the bats' eyes!  You can see that I colored the ghosts eyes in the card above the same way.  

I love my neon inks!  I got all the colors:  yellow, green, orange, pink, blue, and purple.  And I am so glad I have them in time for Halloween.  They are the perfect colors for the season.  I am now looking for all things neon--papers, markers, embellishments.  I think they are my new fave!  Happy October!
