Round the watercolour world

DSC_2206 Watercolour world Heather Telford

I have more watercolour die cuts to share. This card has a much higher fiddliness factor than the previous ones and has convinced me that I should never video myself making a shaker card! Rather than trying to describe my trial and error process for making this shaker card I will just list the layers I used from little die cuts right down to the card base. The mini community and ‘the world’ were cut from brusho panels.

I saved the little die-cut bus and cars to put inside the shaker area with the glitter, sequins and micro beads. It wasn’t until I started shaking it that I realised the bus and cars would end up in countless pile ups!

    Looks like a fun card! Too much fiddling for me but I sure enjoyed the concept and your efforts.

    This is a great design Heather and the watercoloured pieces used for the die cuts work really well and the shaker element is a very interesting twist. A fabulous card! x

    This very symbolic card! Black background great emphasizes colors in watercolor. Great idea. Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

    It’s an Ottawa traffic jam right inside your card! (Or perhaps a Sussex sinkhole?) I really love this.
