Introducing "Modern Blooms" and a Giveaway!
Do you remember the freezer paper stencil that I designed for one of my Dress a Girl Around the World pillowcase dresses? I was so fond of it that I decided turn the image into a silkscreen.
I arrived at this design. This is what a fat quarter looks like printed in peacock ink.
I am also printing the fat quarters in fuchsia ink. They look nice paired together.
I am selling the fat quarters in my shop along with some appliques. I fused the fabric to Lite Steam-A-Seam2 and then cut out each individual flower. Whoever purchases the flowers will just need to remove the backing and fuse the applique to their project! I plan to add these appliques to some of my tshirts and to my daughters' clothes as well! The appliques are printed in peacock (teal), fuchsia, lime and red.
And now to fulfill my promise...I would like to giveaway either a fat quarter or two appliques to the winner who will be chosen by the random number generator. All you need to do is leave me a comment here. I will choose a winner next Sunday, March 20th.
Edited to add: The fucshia fat quarters are temporarily sold out in my shop because I was playing with the fuschia ink for my initial designs and ran out halfway through the batch! Therefore, I only had one to put in the shop! I have more ink arriving early this week though and there will be more fat quarters in the shop later this week (and it is definitely still an option for the giveaway). I've learned my lesson and will practice with colors that I don't plan on using to print the final design!
