Traditionally, the drinking of tea is as important a part of dim sum as the food, so I decided to include a lovely tea cup in my dim sum design.
The background in this design is actually the darker shade of green in the limited color palette, with two overlays of stripes; vertical and horizontal, in the cream from the palette. Visually, the resulting green is almost the same shade as the lighter green from the limited palette, but with a bit of a linen-look texture.

Shelly, how did I miss this gorgeous dim sum design?! Where have I been?! It is so beautifully done and I love the diagonal feel. You are amazing!
Thanks so much, Karen, for your vote and kind words. I loved so many of the dim sum entries. Would be nice to make it in the top ten some time. I'll keep trying, I hope you do too! It's good for us to work from a brief. It gets us out of our comfort zones! :~)

This design is absolutely gorgeous, it was one I voted for. It deserved to be the winner or at least in the top ten. I have been designing for the contest for five years now. It's always a mystery how some fabrics win. Yet I wanted to stop by and tell you how gorgeous your deigns are.
Thank you, Jan! And thanks for noticing the layered texture! :-)
Beautifully drawn! Love the detail and the layered texture!
Gorgeous! So elegant and I love the detail in your illustration!
