BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Monday, 27 May 2013
Beneath the Rowan Tree will be celebrating it's Sixth Anniversary! 
To mark the event, we are inviting YOU to create a new BTRT colorway.

At BTRT we adore COLOUR.
And it has been our passion and joy to share colour in all its glory,
paired with the gorgeous natural magic of silk for six years.
What is a 'colorway'?
It is the combination of colours that make up the finished effect used on our multi-coloured playsilks.
Back when I started dyeing, you had either tie dyed (patterned) silks or muted solids to choose from,
so I borrowed from my yarn dyeing friends and began using colorways...
BTRT broke out with bright, vivid colours and creative multicoloured silks in a variety of sizes and toys
(many of which are 'standard' for newer silk shops today).

•~• NOW we are inviting you to create the color combinations! •~•

All you have to do is COMMENT on this post with the 2-3 colours 
you would like to see become a colorway!
Be specific and feel free to link to images to help visualize!
(ie. sapphire blue, pumpkin orange and hot pink)
We will randomly select THREE winners.
Each will receive a 35" playsilk dyed in their colorway.

The Fine Print:
We will ship prizes worldwide.
One per household.
We will randomly choose three comments~ if the colorway is already being dyed at BTRT, we will choose another comment... so originality counts! (See our current collection in our Etsy Shop)
Winners will be chosen on June 1st at 10 PM est.
Enter ONCE for reading this post.
Enter AGAIN for being or becoming a blog follower (left hand column).

Colour Tips:
Remember your colour theory ~ colours do blend when dyed!
Colours will be dyed in the order you list them,
so the most prominent and/or lightest colour should come first.

Thanks for your ongoing support! 
Good luck and have fun! ♥
