Huge Purple Flowers

Recently someone mentioned that they knew someone else who had just brought a duvet cover that has "Huge purple flowers" on it. This gave me a most interesting mental picture - and I recreated in Inkscape (which has just been updated!) for you to see - the result is shown above. Note that those plants would be at least 3 times your size.

Anyway, I also learned that you can mix SVG with CSS (and Javascript, but I haven't got to playing with that yet). as a test, I created a quick square in Inkscape and then opened the resulting file up in my favourite text editor and plugged in some CSS animations. This is what I came up with:

A simple loading animation

The square above is actually black and set to have a low opacity, to it sets on the colour anything that is behind it. It is also done in percentages, so you can set the width and height of the containing <img /> tag and it should scale accordingly.

I might do some more of this in the future - it looks to me like a wonderful way to create a nice little self contained widget that you can use anywhere.
