Interesting colours

I have been playing around with some foiling techniques that Purple Missus has had on her blog, and this is fusible vilene with three colours of foil adhered to it and then some dark acrylic washed on to take away the white of the vilene. It looks better in the flesh than on the scan.
I am going to play with it tomorrow, she has a very good tutorial on how to do it and how to make a heart from it.
I should have done my drizzle stitch but I am afraid that with such a busy week end I havent yet and today was equally as busy, we sold a gelding and Sarah has just put up a web site for Rivington Stud, the web site is
and I hope it comes up, it looks pretty good and her photos of the ponies look fabulous. Now I have to try and get it into the links, wish me luck!

This is looking really good Penny. I like the way the colours of the foils peek through the surface. Afraid to say I can't take credit for the heart, that tute is by Carol McFee (Textile Tales).
Look forward to seeing what you make with this piece of fabric.

This looks better than a Rothco painting. Lovely colours. How big is it?
