The latest Paperartsy challenge is to use pigment powders, and time is running out - it closes at 5pm tonight!
There have been some fabulous projects from the guests, I particularly liked Catherine's clean and simple cards and Kay's garden of dreams both of which inspired me, although this is not really like either!
I decided to have a little play with the Bistre powders I bought last week at Ally Pally, on some watercolour paper
I put a couple of crystals of the mahogany and blue separately on the craft mat and added some water to mix, and then painted in some of the flowers to fill them out a little.
for the leaves at the bottom, I stamped and then painted the leaves with water, then dripped some Leaf Green Brusho into the leaves, and painted them out.
I finished by mounting it on a piece of black card.
I like the much more grungy colours to the Bistres, and have noticed that some of them are quite fine powders, whilst others are more crystally (if that's a word!)
