Pansy Bouquet

Pansy birthday Heather Telford

Today I am featuring yet another beautiful botanical stamp from the new Happy Everything collection. To create this panel I stamped the leafy border stamp from the Twirls set as background. I inked the pansy bouquet with markers, stamped it, then spritzed with water. Using a waterbrush and memento inks stamped on an acrylic block as a palette I filled in the pansies and leaves. When the panel was almost dry I added yellow centres with a marker. I splattered some light blue and green colour from watercolour pencils to complete the panel.

Readers in the Ottawa area might be interested to know I am offering some classes in March. You can view the projects and register on my new Classes page.

    How beautiful

  2. Simply…yeah right!!!! I have seen some beautiful work of yours in the past but I have to say this has to be my favourite, and I don’t say that lightly. How I wish, at time like this, I lived in Ottawa! If ever you are in Brittany…just let me know! When God blesses someone with a skill, He delights in the sharing of that skill. He delights in you. Thanks for sharing!
