Sweet Trumpet Song

Sweet trumpet song Heather Telford

I pulled out the ‘Trumpet Song’ stamp again and stamped an even looser image than the previous two (here and here). I stamped on watercolour paper splattered with masking fluid. After stamping with distress stains I did a little blending with a paintbrush then let it dry. After it was completely dry I added some extra definition to the flowers with coloured pencils. Using coloured pencils at the end made it possible to add the purple star shape to the blue flowers. Unlike some of my recent flower stamping I attempted to the keep the colours close to real life on this card so I pulled up a few photos for reference. I finished the card by matting with blue and adding a little tag with an abbreviated sentiment. Thanks for dropping by today.

    I love this stamp and your chosen colours are so bright and pretty, and what a great idea to add the detail and finishing touches with your pencils. x

    So pretty! Somehow you managed an image that’s fluid and defined at the same time. 😉
