Pantone's Color of the Year

I had to use Pantone's "Color of the Year",  Tangerine Tango, (LOVE it) in a recent project. I took one of my existing patterns that I had previously done in 7 or 8 colors and made it into a two color design.

The comments from Flickr postings on this one boiled down to "vintage" styling. I used Tangerine Tango with a deep, rich, brown color.

This one uses the same Pantone Tangerine color, with a beige. I think that I like the effect of these two colors together better than the brown. What a difference a color makes, eh?

Oh, and if you want to Pinterest any of my artwork or photography from here, please attach a link to this blog and give me credit. If you don't, I will find you and hurt you ;)


  1. I just love this design - I think agree, I prefer the bottom one too,(they are both gorgeous though!) I love how intricate and detailed they are :)

    1. Thanks Julia! I love playing with the colors, when you layer some next to each other then flip them, the design looks completely different!
