Thanks for popping in!
Continuing our little Bloggy sale,
I was lying in bed this morning,
thinking about something blue for Thursday,
and this particular piece of artwork kept popping into my head.
I really like it.
Susan Moran inspired it,
and I was so chuffed when I added the blue to the back,
I shan’t forget it.
I blogged it a month ago, if you want to see the step by step pattern build-up, here it is below:
Lacy corner on four sides
Fill the gaps with the same corner.
White work on the leaves and flower bases.
Colour in with two different blue pencils.
Dust back with talc to get rid of paw prints.
Load Brush with Denim and brush colour in around the edges,
working from behind and avoiding the centre.
Add a message in the middle
using the Occasions and Relatives Borders.
Flip over and be chuffed.
Be very very chuffed.
On a scale of 1-10 for feeling delighted with the result,
this one definitely pings a 10.
I wonder whether it would look as good in another colour….
Only one way to find out!
Eggplant is one of my faves….
But the colouring in needs to change too.
Have to go in from the front for this,
to colour over the top.
Yep! I thought it would be fab!!!
Added a little pink and purple colour over the blue from the top,
just to check…
I used Denim Adirondack here in the original,
but believe it or not, we have sold out and cannot get any more.
(Gasp. Other blues are available, as they say!
The Distress Pad Blues work, too)
I reckon there are several colours this technique
would look super with,
so let me offer you a few other Adirondack ink pads at a special price.
We have a limited supply of Adirondacks left,
so if when they’re gone, they’re gone.
If you like Adirondacks as much as I do, then stock up!
Now for the rest of our little Bloggy Sale though.
I’d say 20% of the Lacy Corner Border, the one I used here.
Oh. And let’s the thing we rattle through to the sale too!
Right. That’ll do for a flash sale.
Offers end at midnight tomorrow.
Love & hugs,
