This week Allison is our hostess and she is challenging you to create using the newest Pantone Color of the year… Radiant Orchid… but any shade of purple will do!
According to the Pantone View, “Since 2000, the Pantone Color Institute™ has been designating a Color of the Year to express in color what is taking place in the global zeitgeist. A color that will resonate around the world, the PANTONE Color of the Year is a reflection of what people are looking for, what they feel they need that color can help to answer. Not necessarily the hot fashion color of the moment, but a color crossing all areas of design which is an expression of a mood, an attitude, on the part of the consumers.” Have fun using purple in your creations this week!
Howdy all… Ally here! For this week’s challenge I decided to create a tag instead of card. And since my challenge for you this week incorporates my favourite colour purple, I wanted to get super creative and inky.
For my tag today I used the following Copic Markers to airbrush and colour my back ground and images:
I used the following stamp sets for my tag: Chrysanthemum, for the flowers and the sentiment; So Distressed, for the chevrons and the Vintage Wallpaper (my new favourite stamp!! – a mixed media must-have!), for the background resist.
Make sure to check out my blog today, as I have done a step-by-step tutorial on how I created my tag. I used a Copic Blender Solution resist technique that is a must-see! Thanks for joining us today. I can’t wait to see your purple creations this week!
