I printed the image onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copics. I used a small handful of markers– a few yellows and oranges for the blossoms (even though Forget-Me-Nots are most commonly blue), with the Copic equivalent of Pantone’s Color of the Year, YG25, and accompanying shades for the leaves. (You can see all of Copic’s YG choices HERE.)
I don’t usually use such a bright green as a dominant color in my work but Pantone’s bright cheery green has inspired me. I used a bit of it in a previous post (here) but wanted to focus on this refreshing color a bit more. In addition to using YG25 for the leaves, I used a bright green stripe in the background. It’s a bit more bold than my “usual,” but I like it!
I challenge you to incorporate some YG25 in your creating! You’ll definitely be seeing more from me. 🙂
