Music and Blooms

Music & blooms Heather Telford

 

The new Pocket Treasures release from Penny Black features some wonderful new background panels. The music and canvas stamps on this card are two of my favourites. There are several more patterns you can see in tomorrow’s post.

This card is lot busier than my usual creations with none of my usual white space. I stamped the flower panel first on watercolour paper using distress inks. I inked the solid flower stamp from Petal Power and spritzed it with water before stamping to make a very loose blended image. I added some more colour with a waterbrush and continued adding colour with both the solid stamp and the co-ordinating outline stamp until I was happy with the result. I stamped the music over the top. I inked the canvas stamp with distress stain and spritzed it before stamping on the card base and added several large drops of water.

I did a little stamp surgery to create the sentiment. The original stamp from Edge to Edge says “you make my heart smile” but I found that I never used the whole phrase; it was often too big for my designs. So instead of avoiding the stamp I removed the ‘heart’! I also had to change the ‘my’ to ‘me’ which involved cutting off the tail of the ‘y’ and adding a loop with a marker. I don’t often slice up my stamps but I think I might use this one more often now.

Supplies:

Stamps: Petal Power, Edge to Edge, Footnotes, Textures (PB)
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko) Walnut Stain, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint  Distress inks (Ranger)

    Beautiful! I love the poppy and music panel, of course, but the canvas-stamped background is very effective, too.
