Challenge # 49 - "Coming Up Orange"

I hope everyone enjoyed the past challenge.  The Design Team has created some inspirations for the next challenge.  The theme is "Coming Up Orange".  You can create anything you like as long as you have orange as the prominent color.

Below you  will find how the DT's treated this challenge.
My lovely image is from Lunagirl, my sponsor this time.  There is a lot of orange in this image and I used a bright orange piece of cardstock as my card base.  On top of that I used various shades of orange by using the printed cardstock on one side and the cut paper lace.  These shades tone down the bright cardstock.  On the other side I used a piece of sheet music which I distressed with tea.and left out in the sun a couple of days.  Lunagirl has so many beautiful digital images; it is hard to pick one.

What a great colour challenge with a great sponsor!! I just loved creating with this Luna Girl Collage image and it's so much fun to create with a vibrant colour like orange!

Orange is a wonderful color and images from Lunagirl are truly delicious. This image from the Lunagirl Mucha 1 sheet is so beautiful on its own that I didn't want to do too much. I used orange and gold card stock, a border and some flowers. I love these colors! I hope you will have fun with this challenge.

Sometimes it is so much fun to work with coloured images, especially making 3-D projects. That is what I did with the gorgeous Mucha girl image from Lunagirl, our sponsor this week.
Once I started cutting the image, I realized how much detail it has, and how many more possibilities. I added some glitter and glossy accents to give more dimension that you can view here.

 I made a couple of ATC's with these pretty images, pairing them with a couple of great art quotes.  The background of the ATC's was made using a Spectrum ink pad on glossy cardstock.  I love the vintage look of these images - and I love being able to put something together so quickly because they're already colored.

This is my DT piece for the new challenge over at 'The Cheerful Stamp Pad', where the theme this week is 'Coming up orange'. The challenge has been sponsored by Lunagirl, who also supplied the DT images.

I have mounted the image onto copper coloured miri-card, which has been mounted onto distressed cardboard, inked with forest moss. gold and rusty something-or-other, and embossed with a mix of copper, pearl and bronze eps.  I added some ribbon, lace, string, beads and an orange flower as embellies.
