Sunset Rendezvous

sunset rendezvous Heather Telford

When making scenes like this one I sometimes create the background first then decide what to add to the foreground. Other times I stamp my images and add the sky after. For this one I positioned a moon punched from masking tape on a piece of watercolour paper then painted colour over the whole panel using brusho powders. I can’t remember but it is likely that I intended the panel to be portrait orientation with the moon in the top right corner.

I decided instead to make the masked circle appear to be the sun going down so the light around it is yellow and pink with blue on the far left. Once the paint dried I stamped the tree stamp in versafine onyx black ink to complete the sunset scene.

I didn’t add a sentiment as it is the kind of card I could use for any number of occasions. Once I pull it out to use it I can add a small sentiment in the bottom right corner if I wish.

I’m in Australia at present visiting my family; I’ll be posting some photos from time to time on my other blog, Sentient and on instagram

  6. Another beautiful card – thank you for sharing and for your inspiration to try powdered watercolors. I have some Colorburst ones but haven’t had the courage to try them yet… maybe now I will…
