Greenery - Pantone Colour of the Year

Hello, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year.

Today I have a card based on the 2017 Pantone colour of the year, which is Greenery. It's a lovely fresh yellow-green, and is a calming, reinvigorating colour for the new year.

What better set to use for my card than the MFT Leafy Greenery die-namics!

To create the leaves, on watercolour paper I blended Zig Clean Colour Real Brush pens (44 Light Green and 45 Pale Green) with a little water to create a wash of colour. I then die cut several leaves from it, using the MFT Leafy Greenery die-namics.

From an A6 piece of white card, I die cut an MFT Single Stitched rectangle frame to create a window. The background needed some colour, so I used the MFT Distress Patterns stamp set with some green inks to add paint splatter detail.

On an A6 card base, I blended on some light blue distress ink to show through the window when the card is put together. I arranged the leaves to sit within the frame and adhered everything down.

To finish the card, I added a sentiment using the MFT Label Makers stamp set.

Thank you for joining me today. I hope I've inspired you to have a go at making a card using the Pantone Colour of the Year 2017.
