Color Spotlight: Green, Day 3

March 4, 2015

Join us as we continue to explore products from our newest release, Bring on the Happy. This week we take a closer look at all things GREEN. We figured if you’ve been looking at white snow and feeling cold temperatures, you just might be DREAMING of green grass, pretty flowers, and all things spring. What better way to warm things up this week than with designer projects that feature the color green.

Elizabeth frequently incorporates bright, happy shades of green into her card designs. Don’t you love the fresh leaves on her beautiful flower?

When designing with the color green, warm yellows and oranges are a beautiful complement.

    Gorgeous card but the directions (I followed the link) are pretty scanty. What colors of watercolor & pencils were used?

      Pagoda, thank you for your interest in my color tones.

      I used a combination/mixture of the following Sakura Koi Watercolors:
      Flower: Chinese White, Permanent Yellow, Permanent Orange, Vermilion Hue, Cadmium Red Hue, Crimson Lake and Quinacridone Rose.
      Leaf/Stem: Yellow Green, Olive Green, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Umber and Aureoline Hue.

      And these were the Faber-Castell Pastel Pencils:
      Flower: 101, 104, 109, 113, 118, 193
      Leaf/Stem: 101, 106, 156, 168, 176
      Once the watercolors were dry, I applied the pastel pencils and used blending stumps to blend out the pastel colors.

      Happy coloring, Elizabeth
