of Lilypads and Tomatoes

Return of Everlasting Gobstopper. I wasn't thrilled with the tickets from the first set so I redid them as tags and flashcards. Only two sets left before these ribbons are gone! I also heard some desire for Earthtones. I imagine I may do more along those lines in Autumn (thinking pumpkins already!), but I did find some inspiration for a few sets now. The first set "Fire and Blueberry" came from a Marjolein Bastin painting...

And a summer set, Heirloom Tomato, with browns, greens, and a dark red...


(Don't look too closely- I could only find apple vintage labels)


And a few Fabulously Shabby Blossoms. I only had enough green to do one set for Lily Pad.

And I am thrilled to say that I hope to add real SILK ribbons to the shoppe soon, too. The roll I purchased to experiment has a GORGEOUS soft hand to it, with nice solid sides unlike some silk bias ribbons. Look forward to some new spring and summer palettes soon!
