Woodland Dusk

Woodland Dusk Heather Telford

The ‘Woodland Wonder’ stamp works beautifully for a restful or dramatic scene depending on the colours you add to the sky. The soft colours of dusk in the sky above seemed to fit with a sympathy or prayerful sentiment. The sky was a scrap waiting for a purpose; it was created when I stamped the image of the woodland wonder stamp on acetate to use with the stamp positioner. Several days later the ink was still wet on the acetate so I pressed it onto some wet watercolour paper. The blurry blues you see are the result. I added the black image then stayed within the colour scheme for matting and card base. I’m not sure what the ink on the acetate was but my guess is Memento Paris Dusk.
