I have a serious thing for this green. Years and years ago I got the idea that fantasy style magic needed a color other than white or gold sparkles. I was so excited when Ranger and Tim released Twisted Citron because I had an easy were to give stamped fairies their glow and messenger birds trailing their sparkles. I've been using colored pencils to give cats and wolves their citron green eyes; now I have an even brighter way to do this. So, that's my tweak.
Twisted Citron is a super bright spring green. Certain plants push out new leaves that are this bright, and usually fairly thin and fragile. This color nails that effect perfectly. This is also a gotta have '60s retro color -- my sister and I had little dresses this color that we loved. If you have the right stamps, this color is great for jelly beans, gummy worms, even birthday candles on cupcakes with pink frosting. Do not be afraid of stamping in black, and doing the watercolor trick to add this lovey green.
This is a fun color. Not for everyone since it is almost neon, but I'm very happy to have it in my collection.
I have most of Tim’s colors but somehow over looked this one. I wanted a brighter group of colors for some projects. This is a nice, bright lime that goes well with some of his brighter colors...like Candy Apple & Abandoned Coral, & Wilted Violet. Love all of Tim Holtz’s colors!
