Shaded Canopy

Shade and green Heather Telford

‘Shaded Canopy’ is another lovely (and versatile) stamp from the new ‘A Little Bit of Sunshine’ release. My scene today could be spring or summer depending on where you live. When I first moved to Canada I could not believe how bright green the summers were. Where I lived in Australia I was used to pale muted colours in summer because everything became very dry.

I used distress stains and inks for stamping and for painting the background leaving a space around the scene to frame it then popping up the panel on the same colour card base.

I am teaching a class this month in Ottawa where we will use this stamp to create four cards, one for each season.

    This makes such a pretty little painting! The trees are barely showing any buds here yet, so looks more like summer to me right now. 🙂
