Season’s Tweetings video

This sweet bird on a branch is a single stamp from the new Penny Black release ‘Season of Hope’. The stamp is called ‘season’s tweetings’ and I used it here to create both the bokeh background and the foreground watercoloured image. I filmed my process so you’ll see how I use the same blending technique to build up colour on the leaves and just a few tones to paint the little bird. (the video might look familiar to you if you have a membership with Penny Black)

We have a few centimetres of snow on the ground this morning so this sort of scene is becoming way more likely!

Thanks for dropping by today, I will be back with more of the PB new release over the coming weeks.

    There is something so compelling about the look of this sweet little bird in the holly branches and again your colour choices and watercolouring technique are perfect Heather. I think this is a stunning card. x

    Another great card for the CASE list! This video is a wonderful demo/lesson for very useful techniques on PB brushstroke stamps that have eluded me so far. Thank you, thank you, Heather…..again.
