Dazzling Ace of Diamonds!

We just received the latest design from the prolific Laura J. Perin, "Ace of Diamonds." What a delightful study in blue and purple!

Laura's using three Caron Collections Watercolours along with a couple of DMC #5 perle cotons and YLI Ribbon Flosses to create this lovely, portable design. It works up into a 9.75" x 9.75" piece on 18-ct mono canvas. Laura recommends French Blue but also says that you can use Pewter just as well. We're kitting it up with whichever happens to be in stock when we receive your order, as the French Blue is hard to find right now. (We do have enough on hand for several kits, but it won't last.)

Although Laura hasn't provided other colorways, she did include some guidelines for selecting your own. If you'd like to do it in your preferred color palette, just e-mail Sara Leigh with the number of your favorite Watercolour, and she'll do her magic where possible. (Not all of the Watercolours colors lend themselves to this limited palette.)

We anticipate some beautiful colorways being developed for this piece.
