Game 3:

From top: Tangerine, Clementine, Flan, Lemon Ice, Moss, Beryl, Jade, Fuchsia

This bundle reflects the door, window and building colors from a recent trip to Cartagena, Colombia. That city glows with a vibrant Caribbean vibe that is ever so slightly muted by the bright equatorial sun. 


Heirloom Opal
From top: Amethyst, Royal, River, Aruba, Cyan, Honeydew, Apple Green, Android
Have you ever seen an Australian opal?  From a dark background that's maybe black or darkest purple comes flashing bits of color in greens, blues, and turquoise.  It reminds me of the Northern Lights - a phenomena I've never personally seen but would love to.  The beauty of an opal is that you have this miraculous combination of colors and glowing light contained in a piece of jewelry.  Almost makes it seem magical to wear one.  I've been working on a pattern to, hopefully, illustrate the beauty and sparkle.  Check my feed to see how this beautiful stack of colors will be transformed....
