When a color combo speaks to me, I can’t resist.  I simply cannot resist.  Blues and greens together just makes me *happy*!  They can be bold and bright, or deep and rich, soft and gentle, and in this case, maybe a little of all three?  I think I will forever have a love affair with green and blue together.  It’s my favorite!  Ask my family; they’ll tell you just how many celery green (smashing with denim, doncha’ know) sweaters, tees, blouses, jackets, etc., there are in my wardrobe . . . I prolly look hideous, but, fashion and color trends be damned; I cannot help m’self . . . *chortle*

So, anyway, I like this design.  MUCHLY!  I bounced fiercely upon completion!  I’m not quite sure what they call the technique, as it isn’t exactly  "spotlighting", technically speaking, UKWIM?  Rather a derivative or slight modification of the original technique, I guess . . . ?   The name of it will come to me . . . eventually . . .

Did I say how much I like this?

Have a fabumous Thursday!  (No, that was not a typo.)
