Spoonflower weekly contest

The theme this week is "Geodes and Gemstones".   As usual, everyone has a unique approach to the theme.  There are some really beautiful entries.  Voting runs 2/20 - 2/26.  Check them out and vote for your favorites here.

I decided to create amethyst geodes using watercolor.  I have always loved amethyst because it's my birthstone and also because I've never grown out of my childhood love of purple.  While painting them, I had the wacky idea to glue some coarse sugar to the painting to give them a little more sparkle and dimension.  I kind of like the effect the sugar created.

  I also uploaded the design to Society6.  Here it is on a phone case...
