Watercolour powders 1

I have a card and the process steps on the Country View Crafts Project Blog today and thought I would make another one for here.


Follow the steps on the CVC blog HERE but mix and match your powders, I used brown bistre, royal blood infusion and grey brusho to show how they can all work together. The two steps needed to create this are so easy and can produce some amazing effects.


Gather some items to embellish the card and create your focal point.


I edged the card with ground espresso and created a small collage with a sentiment.


There we go, a great vintage card in under an hour and a half, well it can be if you just go for it, but if you're like me you'll spend ages choosing your colours and your collage elements lol and take longer.

Here's the one that can be found at Country View Crafts project Blog, it would be lovely if you could pop over to take a look.



Have fun and happy Sunday.

Always meant to ask where you find all your lovely ephemera...do you trawl the antique shops? Gorgeous creation as always :D XXX

Beautiful! Love the soft effect with the powders on the background. The layering of the ephemera draws the eye to the focal point. Beautiful design as well.

Both are beautiful projects with gorgeous backgrounds and the best collages! Picking out those pieces always leaves me scratching my head! Collage is a skill you have perfected and I need to work on. I'm off to CVC for a look-see! Sending hugs!
