Tiny Town

Christmas town Heather Telford

I have a couple more new dies to show today from the ‘Especially for You 2015’ release, a big sentiment die and a tiny town. The reveal continues next week with new stamps!

This little town die is the cutest thing and fitted nicely below my dramatic bister sky. I sprinkled bister over a panel of watercolour paper which already had masking fluid splattered on it. Next I spritzed with water and let the magic happen. I wanted a warm light to shine out of all those tiny windows so I die cut another little town from watercolour paper and sponged colour onto most of the window pieces and slotted them into the spaces. I am thinking this one might make it into one of my Christmas classes. It is not obvious in the photo but there is a little sparkle on that sentiment die.

Inks:  Spiced Marmalade distress ink (Ranger)

    Yet another gorgeous bister sky Heather and the die cut houses are wonderful with the light shining from the windows which makes it warm and welcoming, and the sentiment is perfect. x

  3. My wish would be for something other than bister and watercolor powders.  Do you see getting back to the basics in the future or do you recommend this as a new ‘basic’?Thank you,Mary

      Watercolour powders are just the lastest medium to join the fun in my craft room! I will definitely continue to use distress stains, dye inks, paints and pencils along with my stamps and dies. I am keen to keep discovering new products and techniques to share here on Bits & Pieces.

    A gorgeous sky! Very Aurora Borealis, to me at least. And I do like the lights in the tiny windows.
