My inspiration for Orange was "Wild Sweet Orange" Tazo Tea. The label inspired an ATC a few months ago. When Misty prompted us to journal with Orange today, I knew I'd be using the tea label again.
Today I mixed acrylic paint to get different shades of orange. I used Cadmium Yellow Medium Hue, Permanent Rose & Titanium White. Depending on the amount of white used, you can come up with a nice orange sherbert hue. I also added a bit of burnt umber for some of the darker shading. A sepia Pitt marker was used to outline the flower. I used a black gel pen for accents and journaling. There's also a bit of watercolor pencil accent work, too.
I also added a bit of stamping to add texture. A chalk ink pad works great for this.
