French Country Contemporary - Design Pack No. 2

Thursday, 23 July 2015

Hi everyone!

Today I want to tell you about Design Pack No. 2 for the Colour Couture French Country Colours Collection : )

Just before I do that, & especially for those who missed the introduction of Colour Couture & the introduction of the first design pack & haven't got a clue what I'm talking about, here's a quick recap : )

Colour Couture is the new way to buy colour & design at Pink Petticoat.

Whereas with The Colour Collection you select & shop by design - you simply select a design and get it in 38 colours, with Colour Couture, you select & shop by colour - you simply choose a colour & you get up to 25 designs in your chosen shade.

The colours are available individually. So you can choose as many or as few colours as you like, and not only will you get colours & shades that are designed to work together beautifully, you can also use them with your most-used favourite shades from The Colour Collection too. As I add more colours, you can choose whether or not you want to add those too!

The first colours to be introduced, were the 15 colours of the French Country Colour Palette - soft, muted colours put together to reflect a flavour of Provence & the pretty, feminine elegance of a worn, country cottage & colours faded over time.

You can find them on *this* page in the Boutique.

And you can download a Colour Sampler as a free printable so you can see how the colours work for you, with your own printer, at home ...
.pdf file (252 kb) or
.tif file (740 kb) as a .zip file



Now let me introduce you to the second design pack available in the French Country Colours : )

I'm calling it the 'Contemporary' Designs Pack. And it is a combination of the designs which have been most-requested in the new colours, since they were first introduced, along with a few brand new ones too. So new, in fact, they're not even in the main Colour Collection yet.

These are the designs I've included ...



And each of the colours ...
- includes 35 papers, over 25 designs (some designs have both a positive & negative printing option)
- & a solid colour paper too
- in a single colour of the French Country Colour Palette.
- Each of the designs print as individual A4 sheets.
- They are available with White elements/backgrounds
- and their retail price will be £2.99 per colour.



I'll be adding each individual colour for the new Design Pack to the Boutique over the next 2 weeks. I'll let you know as & when I do : )

But in the meantime, as I did previously, & especially for those of you who would like the new designs in all the French Country colours, I've put all 15 shades into a 'French Country' Contemporary Patterns Pack.

And just 'til Sunday, 26th July, they're just £15.00 for all of them. That's a cost of only £1.00 per colour & a saving of over 60% on the individual price of an individual colour pack.

If you'd like to take a further look, you can find the 'French Country' Contemporary Design Pack *here* in the Boutique.


And I hope you like them!

Shanty Chic Pattern Paper Pack

Tuesday, 7 July 2015

Hi everyone! I hope you're enjoying the beautiful summer weather we've been having. Well, at least so far this year : )

I've been out & about soaking up the sun, and drawing inspiration from everything I've seen for some new pretty papers for our summer projects … like these, 'Shanty Chic', which I added to the Boutique last night.

There are, of course, many different ways we can interpret the shades of the shoreline. Nautical navy blue paired with crisp, clean white & perhaps a splash of jaunty red. Or bright, playful, cheerful colours - the bright yellow of the sun, the shimmering shades of blue, green & turquoise of the ocean & perhaps the pink of a strawberry ice-cream.

But there is also a much softer set of colours that we associate with it too. One that reflects the sun-bleached shades of the sea & sand on a lazy, hazy, hot summer's day - soft, pale blues & green of a balmy sea & the neutrals of pale sandy beaches, hard rock cliffs, seashells & driftwood. A more casual, tranquil, feminine way of interpreting coastal style.

And that's the colour palette I've chosen for this collection, 'Shanty Chic'

The designs themselves include seaside-inspired hand-painted watercolour florals, pale blue watercolour-effect background papers & of course, crabs & fishes & starfish & shells. All very feminine too : )

Let me show them to you …

The download itself includes
- 20 patterned paper designs.
- The designs print as individual A4 sheets,
- and their retail price will be £2.99.

These are the designs I have included ...

Beach-inspired florals ...





Little fishes …




Seahorses …



& Starfish …



Vintage-inspired prints …



There are watercolour stripes, paisley designs & picnic blanket checks ...





& some text-based accessory papers …





And in this close-up shot …


… I think you can see how beautifully they all work with one another.


If you'd like to take a closer look at them, you can find 'Shanty Chic' *here* in the Boutique.

And they are just £1.99. That's 30% off ... just 'til this Sunday, 12th July.

And I hope you like them!


Love Liz xx
