Inspired by 2022 Pantone Color

 Hello friends!

Do you know this year's Pantone color of the year? Today's post was inspired by the color Very Peri

From Pantone:

Displaying a carefree confidence and a daring curiosity that animates our creative spirit, inquisitive and intriguing PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri helps us to embrace this altered landscape of possibilities, opening us up to a new vision as we rewrite our lives. Rekindling gratitude for some of the qualities that blue represents complemented by a new perspective that resonates today, PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri places the future ahead in a new light.

We are living in transformative times. PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri is a symbol of the global zeitgeist of the moment and the transition we are going through. As we emerge from an intense period of isolation, our notions and standards are changing, and our physical and digital lives have merged in new ways. Digital design helps us to stretch the limits of reality, opening the door to a dynamic virtual world where we can explore and create new color possibilities. With trends in gaming, the expanding popularity of the metaverse and rising artistic community in the digital space PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri illustrates the fusion of modern life and how color trends in the digital world are being manifested in the physical world and vice versa.

Since it's color challenge, I started out with creating my own blend of color paper. The featured products are Painted Blooms Die Set, Lacy Tile Stencil , Magnolia Ballerina Stamp

For the DIY paper, I sprayed color mist (from Spring Blooms Spray Bundle) onto watercolor paper.

Once the sprayed paper was dry, I die cut the paper with Painted Bloom Die Set.

To add interest to the background, I partial-stenciled Lacey Tile Stencil over the card base.

I did use Artist Markers to highlight the flower center to make the blooms more pronounced in depth and colors.

 For the leaves, I used Gradient Cardstock.

Nice use of the sprays for the color creation process. I don't follow Pantone or their color series, but they seem to be a large influencer.
