Flower Fest in Tangerine Tango

A fashion article that I read in a newspaper the other day declared that Tangerine is 2012's color of the year. "The shade you'll be seeing lots of in coming months is tangerine, and not just any tangerine -- but "Tangerine Tango," a reddish-orange hue recently declared 2012's color of the year by Pantone, a leading color-forecasting firm based in Carlstadt, N.J. Designers are already on board, having incorporated the shade into their spring lines." (Read the entire article here).

H&M's spring line offers tons of tangerine, like

Conveniently, Stampin' Up! already has a color in their line called just that, Tangerine Tango. I love it paired with Pool Party, Peach Parfait and White, as in this fashion photo, which was the inspiration for today's creation.

The images from the Flower Fest Stamp Set were stamped in Versamark Ink and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.  I stamped and embossed two flowers in each color, and then cut out the centers of one of each and popped them up with a Dimensional. The background was embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

What an arresting color combo. I love the T. Tango with the Peach! Wow! Absolutely love the layout, too. So many elements hanging out in perfect blend. I bet it has real tactile appeal, too.

What a great inspiration photo! I love what you've come up with! The tangerine tango & pool party are just gorgeous together. Really love the dimension of the flowers. I keep looking at that set, but haven't bought it yet. Think I'll need to add it into my next order. I love the white embossing on the darker paper. Really like the details of the embossed layer, ribbon & striped paper also.
