2012 Colour of the Year

Just when I was searching for some inspiration for my very first blog post of the year, the lovely Angela Sargeant posted about the 2012 Pantone Colour of the Year on her Facebook page . . . which just happens to be Tangerine Tango, thanks Angela! If you have never heard of Pantone, pop on over and have a look at their website. Their colour inspirations can be used in all parts of your world, from homewares to creative pursuits.

I obviously had Tangerine Tango on my mind when I sat down to create this card today. I also wanted to use watercolour paper, so I pulled out my Tangerine Tango re-inker and set to work. I also used the re-inker to colour the twill tape that I used for this project.

If you would like to learn more about how to use the watercolour technique, stay tuned for my new 2012 class schedule . . . there may just be a watercolouring class coming up VERY soon!
