Today I’ll be Copic coloring with the new Pantone color for 2019: Living Coral. And since there’s no ‘perfect’ match for it in the Copic collection, let’s talk about glazing to achieve the color desired!
Every year Pantone chooses a color – setting trends for the year across a variety of industries from the arts to household goods and paints to fashion! This year it’s Living Coral.

There’s no exact color – so let’s build our own!
When coloring a “single” color like Living Coral, build a set of colors around it – darker and lighter. And be prepared to adjust a little, like I did by adding a tidge of R22 to the R0 family to make it a little pink-er.
I’ve kept my cards really simple – just glued them onto card bases and rounded the bottom two corners.
Play with the position of stamps – sometimes having them slide off the card front entirely makes for a super playful card!
I stamped the heart and words above the little blue monster before stamping him – and just had to draw in little arms. The other monster needed just a triangle of paper to wrap his little bouquet!

Only you can make monsters so cute Sandy! A great trio of cards.
I love the new color of the year. Can you tell me where I can find the palettes of the color of the year that you showed in your video in the beginning?
I have looked but couldn’t find it on the side of Pantone.
Thanks for showing your cute cards.
You always make monsters so friendly looking and I want to hug them.
