I love the berries from Sun Ripened. They are so lifelike they almost make my mouth water. I'm looking forward to using this set a lot more.
For a dewy look, I used dark purple stickles (Starry Night) on the raspberries and Icicle stickles on the leaves. I also used white crayon to add highlights to the raspberries. I painted the image with twinkling H20s. I might add a sentiment when my Warm Words set arrives on Wednesday!
The fibre is very special. It's hand-spun and made from the silk of recycled kimonos. It's unbelievably soft and the rainbow of colours is so vibrant and lovely. I don't know if I'll be able to give this one away....
