Earlier this month, Pantone announced their Colour of the Year for 2021. There are two for 2021 – Ultimate Gray and Illuminating.
Today I’m sharing a project in the Stampin’ Up! equivalent colours of Basic Gray and Daffodil Delight.
Here’s my SU version of Pantone Painted Poppies…
Using the Painted Poppies Stamp Set and co-ordinating Painted Labels Dies, this is a great any occasion project.
The background uses first and second generation stamping in Basic Gray, with Daffodil Delight highlights added using a Sponge Dauber,
Both the flowers and leaves are stamped in Basic Gray onto the Basic Gray and Daffodil Delight Cardstock. These are then cut out with the dies.
The centre of each flower is given a touch of sparkle with some Wink of Stella.
These are then arranged on top of the background using Dimensionals.
I love how these colours work so well together. The brightness of the yellow seems to lighten the grey, whereas the grey appears to knock back the brightness of the yellow.
I have a feeling these colours might be making more appearances here in 2021!
