white blossoms Heather Telford

I have been wanting to create a white floral panel by relying on the background colour to frame the white petals. It’s hard!

I was inspired by this lovely watercolour painting by Maria Stezhko. I stamped the Delicate Blossoms stamp in memento London Fog grey to get a pale image then painted blues and greens around the petals using the Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolour paints. The colours on the flowers are a combination of the same paints and Faber Castell Albrecht Dürer watercolour pencils. I also added some fine black lines with a Prismacolor Premier fine line marker.

In my backyard I am enjoying the real thing.
