After sharing the Pantone Color of the Year colorways with you, I’m going to USE the ‘PONDER’ group of colors together today. Or at least some of them!

First choose your colorway….here’s the chart section I’m working with:

I pulled out some of the colorway colors, plus a few others for shading purposes; the B29 because my B28 chisel nib is toast (ha) and B69 because I was worried my B29 needed reinking. Yep, I was a Girl Scout: BE PREPARED! ha!


I kept the colorway going with the selections for the layer (a light kraft) and card base (a darker kraft). The whole thing is very different than what I would have done if I was just making up the colors as I went along, so I’m pretty excited that this pushed me to try something else!

Are you ready to hop in and try a colorway? Go download a chart with some ideas in it for colors, and get busy trying it out. Let me know what your results are – did it come out terrible? Or did you learn something new? Leave me a link or tag me with your project, I’d love to see your interpretation!
