Turquoise is one of my favourite colours and I was very pleased when I had an email from Cat Thomas to say that she had included my 'Bridge of Sighs, Venice' card in her Etsy Treasury which can be found here. Apparently this shade of turquoise is one of the Pantone colours for this season and Cat has written a bit more about it in her blog Baban Cat.
Pantone have a website where you can see what colours they have chosen for the year or season and here is a link to the colours for Spring 2012 which includes Cockatoo Pantone 14-5420.
I must admit that I don't always follow strictly what colours are in for a particular season, however, I started to become intrigued about 'in' colours by reading this post written by Niki who writes a lot about colour in her blog Unified Space.
So although it wasn't deliberate I am glad that the colour of my 'Bridge of Sighs, Venice' cards seen below are considered to be one of the 'in' colours for Spring 2012 and they can be found here in my Etsy shop.
