More Pattern Play


When I finished Day 2 of Pattern Play last night, it was too late to start my homework, so I've been a busy little bee this afternoon, catching up so that I don't get detention at the end of the week.

I used a piece of blue gingham paper and resist-embossed the floral background stamp with Versamark, then covered it in Memento Danube Blue ink.  I blotted the excess off with a tissue then I ironed out the embossing.

The yellow flower is also a gingham pattern, which you can just about make out.  I've used the colour scheme from this week's ColourQ:


I'm rushing back to the classroom for Day 3.  I was never this keen at school ...
