True Love

rose triptych Heather Telford

In keeping with my resolve to mix up my card layouts a wee bit I have a triptych inspired card to share. I painted the roses on a piece of watercolour paper, added leaves and blue flowers (not sure what they might be) then decided to find some inspiration on my ‘sketchy’ pinterest board. I sliced my panel into three strips of the same width then trimmed the ends so each would be a different length. The sentiment fitted quite nicely in one of the white spaces. I stamped the sentiment once in green then over the top in blue which gave me the bluey-green I was after to match my paint. I think the colours are soft enough to join in with the ‘pastels’ challenge on Less is More this week.

    Tlhis is so so pretty Heather and I love the pink with the purple and soft green in the background and you have made it that bit different by cutting into three uneven pieces which looks great! x

    This is just beautiful, Heather! Love the soft colours and outlines, and your clever use of the watercolour panel. This design would work with so many of the watercolour or other media bits and pieces we play with.
