MIO Compadres June Dominant Color Hop

Hi everyone!  I am sorry I have been out of commission for a few months.  I had some unexpected changes occur in my life.  I am so happy to be back and hopping with the MIO (My Inky Oasis) Compadres.  Our theme for the June Hop is Dominant Color Cards and the dominant color we had to use in our cards is ORANGE.  I had a great time creating these cards.  You should have arrived here from Joy's Blog, if not, please click on the "previous" button to check out all of Joy's great creations.

I made two cards for our June Hop.  Orange is not one of the colors I use a lot, so it was a challenge to use it on cards that aren't for fall.

For my first card, I used a stenciled background I made using Distress Inks and a stencil from the January Stamp Of Approval Box (SOA) by Catherine Pooler.  The stenciled white cardstock measures 3 3/4 by 5 inches.  I cut a piece of white cardstock using a die from the SOA Box and stamped a flower and sentiment from Fun Stampers Journey Bloom Box.  I colored it with PanPastels.  I placed a few orange sequins on the die cut to give it a little bling.  I adhered the die cut to the white stenciled cardstock and then adhered that to a piece of  4 by 5 1/4 inch black cardstock.  I placed that on a white A2 card base.

My second card is also an A2 card using a white base.  I used a white piece of cardstock cut to 3/3/4 by 5 inches to stamp the sentiment on.  I also colored this cardstock with PanPastels. I stamped the sentiment on to the orange paper and colored it with Copic Markers. I added a little bling to the sentiment with my Clear Wink of Stella pen. The stamp I used is Spellbinder's "Be Sunny" stamp. I adhered this to a piece of black cardstock cut to 4 x 5 1/4 inches.  This was mounted to the card base.

I really enjoyed using the PanPastels which I have not used for many years.  It is great making something old new again.

I hope you enjoyed my cards and will try something from your "stash" that you haven't used in a while.  Also challenge yourself to use a color that you very rarely use.  What fun!!!
