Here is what I came up with:
I also have a freebie for you to use:
You can download it here. Select it by clicking on Leah_LC_WF_freebie then in the right sidebar should be an option to download it.
Don't miss the Mystery Madness Sale this Saturday at Stuff To Scrap! Throughout the day, savings will mysteriously appear and disappear. What are you waiting for?!? Go browse the store now and get your cart filled up with all your favorites. On Saturday, keep your eye on the store and watch the savings appear. Once the savings seem irresistible, hurry and checkout before the savings mysteriously disappear again.
use a color other than white for the text, this will let more of the neon shine through (depending on how light your color it) and the entire text rather than just the outside will be neon.
skip the reflection (pics 7&8) to create more of a clean look
try using different outer glows like noisy or radioactive for a different look
To speed up the process a bit I have made a layer that can be used instead of painting. Simply create your black background, white text, add the glow, then place this over the top and change the layer style to color. To download double click on it to pull it up in a new window, then right click and hit save as picture. Then save it somewhere were you might see it again.
