A second opinion

I’ve been working on a new stamp cushion design… here’s a hint as to the subject! Kiwis have always fascinated me – they’re such quirky critters!

Hopefully mine will be a little plumper and friendlier-looking than this one. He’s going to be in grey-brown marle on a denim/indigo blue felt, but I’m currently debating whether the lettering should be in bright emerald green or bright mustard. Your thoughts?

    Green was the first thing that popped into my mind, but I can see you dilemma.

    Got to be mustard for my vote! Are you going to attempt Maori-esque edging?!

      Hmmm… I actually bought the mustard specifically for this project, but then Mr A put doubt in my mind about it… Maori-esque edging would be very authentic, but I think I’ll stick with rick rack for the sake of my sanity!

    Mustard gets my vote! Think it’ll stand out beautifully!
    Look forward to seeing the outcome!

      Thanks Annabel! Combined with offline votes, it’s now all square – I’ll have to be decisive and cast my deciding vote soon!
