If you find it hard to work with bright colours try using small amounts against a dark background and it will really make your colours jump off the page.
Along with using Amy Tangerine I decided to try some stamping.. I really am a hopeless stamper, I think i'm a stampaphobe.
While at the recent Sarahs Cards retreat I swooned over this amazing background stamp from Studio Calico/Hero Arts I think these were flying off the shelf.!!
Rather than using ink I decided to try acrylic paint as I wanted to stamp with white on my black cardstock and wasn't sure I could get it bright enough using an inkpad.. If you are going to try this apply a thin layer of paint with a sponge and wash your stamp imediately afterwards to make sure it doesn't get clogged up.
Here's a page I have made using the stamping technique and Amy Tangerine Sketchbook collection.
