BLOOM Peeks, Day 5

Gathering together Heather Telford - emboss resist image with clear ep, then sponging, then watercolour pencils to add details to butterflies' wings

I have a variety of colour schemes but only two mediums. The most subdued version is the one above done with DISTRESS STAINS forest moss, worn lipstick & scattered straw plus a black marker to add definition to the poppy centres once the stains had dried a little. I used a MISTI to add colours one at a time | #Heather_Telford

Flowers on flowers Heather Telford.  great explanation on how she did it.  Flowers in back done with mostly water on stamp, and stamped onto bister.

The other day when I was happily stamping background stamps over papers sprinkled with bister powder I made this print with ‘floral tapestry’. I can’t remember exactly what I used to stamp.

Thinking of You

By Heather Telford. Stamp text in Memento Desert Sand. Stamp flowers (from "Delicate Florals" by Penny Black) & sentiment in VersaFine onyx black. [Heather used Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils.

I stamped the tree several times adding black, grey & pink ink separately. When finished I stamped again with versamark then embossed in clear to paint a wash over the tree. I kept the variegated wash in the top half of the panel merging from blue to pink to apricot then stamped a skyline of grey buildings below it. I filled in the space around the buildings with pale grey ink then added black trees in the foreground.
