Today I am delighted to be sharing this card on the Foiled Fox blog. I have mentioned before how much I like the people at the Foiled Fox and we seem to enjoy a lot of the same artsy things. This new set from Penny Black is called ‘Canopy’ and it includes three similar trees of different sizes.
I completed the sky first by blending speckled egg ink over the panel of hot pressed watercolour paper. I painted over the blended ink with water then dabbed away some of the ink with a tissue to create the look of clouds. I also added some splatters because why not?
I stamped the trees one at a time and added a hill below the trunk each time. Painting the little hill while the ink on the trunk was still wet made it possible to softly blend the brown and green inks together.
Make sure you pop over to the Foiled Fox blog to learn more about my process and to browse their lovely projects and products. You know how I feel about tree stamps; you can never have too many. I love the whimsical bendy trunks on these ones; they look like they are swaying in a breeze.
As soon as I saw this I thought 🤔 this is just up your ally. You make these designs so beautiful.
Love those trees and the way they are swaying in the wind. I always enjoy seeing your color blending so perfectly done. I particularly like the brown you blended into the grasses under the tree. What a gorgeous card!
These are really pretty trees Heather and love the way you have coloured them varying the green and brown tones, and given them each a little hill, and the soft blue cloudy sky with a bit of spattering looks beautiful. x
A beautiful scene, Heather! Love the colors of the leaves and the little hills!
