summer of color week two

The colors for this week at SOC are orange and hot pink.  I do like these colors together.  I am going to be busy the rest of this week and may not have time to post again, so decided to post today.  I used these colors for three different projects, the first being this ATC:




The background was made with a Hero Arts, stencil and background stamp and a Impression Obsession cover-a-card stamp. The large heart is a Sizzix die and the medium heart is one that I hand-carved.  The small heart is a punch from EK Success. 

Then, I made this card:




A new circle stamp from Hero Arts was used for the background and for the rest of the card.  As you can tell, I do have a lot of Hero Arts stamps!!

And then I did an art journal page in my new Moleskine journal:



This spread turned out a bit murky to me.  In hindsight, I would have omitted the script overstamping or, at least, used a lighter ink color for it.  Friday will be the first day of summer and, I am looking forward to lots of lazy days!!!  Summer goes by way too fast in my opinion.

I am also linking this post to the Glue It Tuesday Week #14 challenge.

Hope your day is a great one!
